Our mission at Intrinio is to power a generation of applications that will fundamentally change the way our broken financial system works. Intrinio data feeds form the basis of large enterprise business reporting applications, fintech web-apps, mobile apps and even blogs. It's rewarding to see our product come to life at the hands of today's most innovative developers. They are building powerful things.
We're lucky to be in a business where we grow together with our customers, and we're proud to show off their hard work. Each blog in this series will feature a developer or a startup that has leveraged our financial data feeds to build something incredible.
These are their stories.
If you are a fintech developer or financial analyst looking for affordable, accessible financial data, you are in the right spot. Intrinio is 100% focused on changing the way financial data is sold. Instead of pushy sales people, expensive fees, and limited access, we have a data market-place designed so you can save money and make time to build something meaningful.
We threw out the mold of traditional providers and in doing so, built a platform that can take some getting used to. If you are "used to" paying $2,000/mo for a single terminal or getting quoted $20,000/mo for real time stock prices, our platform is well worth learning. This article is designed to provide an orientation to make the learning process easier and includes links to helpful resources as well as explanations of some frequently asked questions.

Are new regulations affecting Tesla's future performance? Easy access to these updates via a News API helps you keep a pulse not only on the company and its performance, but on the general media and public sentiment.

Each day, Intrinio has new users looking for a stock quotes API. It's intuitive that demand would be high for stock price data. Virtually every financial analyst and fintech developer needs this data or their strategies won't work. The problem is that real time stock prices are expensive, and downright unaffordable if you need redistribution rights so you can show the prices to your own customers.
Good luck figuring out how much this data even costs from traditional providers. If you can get a quote, you'll realize that API access with redistribution rights is so expensive it's not even worth it. This article explains how real time stock prices are produced, how Intrinio's stock quotes API works, and why it's a more affordable solution.
