Hottest FinTech Investors in the US That Are Pushing the Global Innovation Envelope

February 2, 2016     By : Sofia

As the FinTech space is tightening up with imaginative entrepreneurs trying to disrupt the market with their solutions, VCs are entering the race to find and fund the most promising one. However, it doesn’t imply an ease of scoring an investment. Behind a successful investment, there is always an unsuccessful one, which makes VCs cautious about their choices. As the LTP team has been at the forefront of profiling FinTech VCs for startups to have a chance of choosing the ones to pitch their solutions, we have developed an expertise in particular interests that groups of VCs have.

The right investors can take a startup long way. Many startups take an exhaustive path of pitching an idea or a product at as many places as possible in the hope of attracting some investors. Instead, FinTech startups should really seek for a particular club of investors that have a particular interest in a field. Expertise, vision and experience make those investors profound in indicating promising opportunities.
