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.

Getting Started With Intrinio

Intrinio is on a mission to provide financial data in a way that is flexible and affordable so that fintech developers can build the next generation of game changing applications for investors. Our ecosystem includes the APIs developers need to build those applications as well as the applications themselves, allowing developers and investors to come together in the same marketplace.

What follows is a quick introduction to the resources and steps both types of users will need to take to get started with Intrinio.

What is the Intrinio Fintech Marketplace?

Cutting through the marketing jargon here is what Intrinio provides. We provide a bunch of different data feeds that allow users to access many different kinds of financial data. The marketplace lets users sign up for the data they need and the pricing plan that fits their needs.

Once a user has access to data, they can analyze the data in an application like Excel or they can build their own application like Vantage for other users to use. These applications, which rely on data from the marketplace, are also available for users in the marketplace.

The idea is to provide the data users need as well as lots of new applications to make that data even easier to analyze. You can browse the apps and browse the data feeds Intrinio provides and see the prices, terms, and limits for those products in the Marketplace.

Signing Up

Signing up for Intrinio is free and easy- all we require is an email and a password, no credit card, no spam. You can signup at www.intrinio.com/login. This will give you access to your account page where you will see your subscriptions as well as three tutorials for accessing Intrinio data through an Excel add-in, a Google Sheets add-on, or directly through an API.
