This is the 8th cohort of founders that we’ve had the pleasure of working with since launching Restive in 2018. This year’s class of companies leverages innovations in AI and machine learning, decentralized infrastructure, and changing consumer behaviors to build the future of financial services. And the market is recognizing the potential of these innovative firms: since we initially invested, a number of these firms have already raised significant follow-on capital.

We were thrilled to spend the last several months working with these founders and are excited about where these businesses are going and what that says about the future of fintech. There is still so much work to do to make financial services work for our modern economy and we’re excited to continue to invest in this space!
