Demoing our ESG sustainable investing platform at FinTechConnect Boston

Data Simply ESG sustainable investing solution presented live

We stopped by to demo at the FinTechConnect event held at the Venture Cafe in Cambridge, MA. At this August FinTech Connect event, Venture Café gave a selection of the area’s start-ups, inventors and researchers an opportunity to showcase their work to the Boston community.

ESG or sustainable investing or responsible investing?

Our CTO John Sawers led the effort as he talked about the Data Simply solution. Whichever terms you prefer, whether it is ESG or sustainable investing or responsible investing (or even impact investing) we provide cloud software to help professional investors meet their goals. 

John talked about how with industry asset growth of 135% in the past 4 years and current $8.7 Trillion of sustainable assets in the US, as well as recent environmental disasters on everyone's mind, it's time for better technology to enable professional investors to help fix the world and still generate desirable returns on their assets. 

He underscored how we understand that incorporation of ESG factors into the organizational processes of institutional investors is key to long term success. Furthermore, we aid with surfacing decision-relevant material ESG information by reporting companies.

Boston FinTech community turns out in force

This special ‘conference night’ event brought together the brightest minds who are building, funding, and innovating in the Greater Boston area’s FinTech Community. Nearly 1000 attendees came out to examine the shifts happening in fintech, hear ideas, see the latest technologies, and participate in building Boston’s FinTech innovation. 

Organizations also helping roll out this event included FinTechSandbox, Brandeis Business School, DCU FinTech Center, Boston FinTech Meetup and One Event Network. 

Let the festivities begin! The crowd enters the exhibit space eager to get their fintech on.
