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.
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.
