APIs allow developers to build connections between their own applications and other applications, enabling data sources to interact. In the past, businesses that wanted their software systems to interact had to purchase expensive ERP software and implement cumbersome, time consuming solutions.

Finance API via Intrinio’s Developer Program: Free For Startups

Intrinio has a very specific mission. We want to make financial data affordable and easy to access. That mission was born out of our attempt to launch our own app, an attempt that failed because the data was too expensive. When we went searching for a finance API that could power what would later become Valuation,  all of the options were either too expensive or too difficult to access for a startup.

So we took a detour and gathered the data ourselves by focusing on building our own finance API our own way. We constructed the API to be easy to access and affordable for startups. This article explains how our mission has come full circle with the Intrinio Developer Program, our program to give free data to developers.
