A cadre of FinTech firms are out to transform the financial markets. Driven by the excesses of the 2008 global financial meltdown, startups are sensing — and rightly so — that opportunities await. Smarter, better, more accessible capital markets are on the horizon.  

One such visionary is dv01. Founded in 2014, this NYC-based company aims to be your platform-of-choice when it comes to lending markets. This sassy SaaS FinTech does the thankless job of squeegeeing that oh-so-finicky financial data. The company recently catapulted forward with a successful $15M Series B. Financial transparency here we come.

Delivering a healthy dollop of elbow grease is Amy Johnson, COO of this lowercase operation. An actuarial science wunderkind, Amy cut her teeth at some of the big investment firms on Wall Street before striking out on her own … into fashion. Fortunately, the capital markets beckoned, and so she returned to empower the team with her hard-won wisdom.

Join us as we pull back the curtain on our interview with Amy…

 

Tell us about dv01 in a few words?

dv01 is the world’s first end-to-end data management, reporting and analytics platform offering loan-level transparency and insight into lending markets.

 

What’s a fun fact about yourself?

I grew up on a farm in Central Illinois. I spent a lot of time at the library, which made me dream big! New York is home for me now!

 

If you could pick any job in the world, what would it be? Aside from your current hustle.

I have worked many years to find my passion, which is growing and scaling companies, so this is pretty far out there…In the winter, I would be a ski lift operator so I could ski the mountain. In the summer, I would work at a beach stand so I could surf.

 

What’s your favorite thing about working where you do?

At dv01, we are building a modern solution for capital markets at a FinTech start-up that fosters not only innovation, but people and collaboration.

 

What’s your company look like 5yrs down the road?

Stay tuned! It certainly won’t look like it does today! We are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our clients. I feel we will execute on our current roadmap within the next few years and we will continue to expand into new asset classes and beyond. Follow us on Linked In and Twitter and watch us grow!

 

What (other) bank, FinTech, or VC do you have the most admiration for and why?

Brex! We use it here at dv01. They are taking an old industry and flipping it on its head. No more personal guarantees for founders and really smart technology that makes card management and expense matching and accounting super easy.

 

Which tech giant will leap into banking first and why? (Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Apple, etc)

Amazon.
