Chainalysis Named To 2018 CB Insights Fintech 250

Below is an article originally written by PowerToFly Partner Chainalysis, and published on October 23, 2018. Go to Chainalysis' page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

On October 22, 2018, CB Insights released their second annual Fintech 250 list, and named Chainalysis as part of the group of emerging private companies working on groundbreaking financial technology. The CB Insights research team selected the Fintech 250 companies based on several factors including data submitted by each company and their Mosaic Score. (You can read more about The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights' algorithm).

In response to the exciting nomination, our Co-Founder and COO, Jonathan Levin noted:

Chainalysis's steadfast mission of building trust in blockchains has made us a trusted partner to the world's leading cryptocurrency businesses, financial institutions, and government agencies. We've always felt that bridging the gap between these three key groups allows the market to seize the nearly unlimited promise of cryptocurrencies, and are proud to be honored alongside other companies moving fintech forward.

In April, we secured $16M in Series A funding led by Benchmark to deploy Chainalysis KYT (Know Your Transaction) and expand our coverage of cryptocurrencies. We now serve over 150 of the world's leading cryptocurrency businesses, financial institutions, and government agencies and we look forward to continuing on that journey.

American Express Company

A Look at Our Event with American Express

On November 14, 2018 American Express partnered with PowerToFly to present our third networking event together. After sold-out events in Florida and Arizona, it was amazing to host an evening at American Express' New York office and the night did not disappoint.

As our guests came in from the cold (there would be a huge snowstorm in NYC the next day), they were invited to receive a complimentary headshot photo (a must when looking for new opportunities) before helping themselves to an impressive buffet spread.

PowerToFly's CoFounder & CEO Milena Berry kicked off the night by officially welcoming everyone and introducing Katrina Roberts, SVP of Technology and Unit CIO at American Express. "This is my second family," explained Katrina, a twenty-seven year veteran of the company. "We work together to achieve amazing outcomes and it does feel like a true team. So that's one of the reasons I've stayed. The second is the challenges are endless. I never stop learning. I'm still learning all the time and I'm always given the opportunity to develop."

When Katrina wrapped her moving keynote address, the audience was treated to a pair of product demos highlighting innovative American Express technology. First up, Shek Lee, American Express Engineering Director spoke about the American Express Chat Bot and the role machine learning plays to help the company deliver customized customer experiences. As Shek explained, "the digital concierge learns your preferences over time and then provides personalized recommendations to help you book your travel."

The next product demo began with a hilarious television commercial starring Tina Fey and featuring Amex's "Pay It, Plan It" tool. American Express Vice President Anna Knizhnik broke down this great feature that allows Card Members to pay for small purchases right away, or make a plan to pay for larger purchases over time.. "People love Pay it, people love Plan it," Anna said. "They can manage their balances and manage their large purchases in a very responsible way. That is one example of the powerful backing of American Express."

Milena then brought back Katrina for a panel discussion where they were joined by American Express technology Vice Presidents John Ahn, Urvashi Tyagi and Divyangi Anchan. After Milena asked the panel some questions, we had a few minutes to open the floor to some very perceptive audience questions. Katrina, who serves as the Global Sponsor for American Express' employee network WIT (Women in Technology) shared how diversity and equality is part of Amex's DNA: "It's about creating safety, comfort, sharing common challenges and creating a sense that we can change things, not just from senior leadership down, but across the organization."

Once the panel wrapped up, our attendees still had plenty of time to network with the American Express team and to ask some more follow up questions. As our guests departed into the soon to be snowy air, they walked away with gift bags and memories of a great night.
