Katipult, cloud-based software infrastructure that allows firms to design, setup, and manage an Investment Crowdfunding, Peer 2 Peer Lending, or Investor Management platform has been recognized as Canada’s most innovative fintech company. In a blog post Katipult explained their mission;
“Private capital markets are plagued with operational inefficiencies and detailed compliance requirements which presents a huge opportunity for firms looking to remove these pain points. As the largest banking institutions in the world look to harness Fintech into their operations, Katipult is positioning itself in the right place at the right time.”
Katipult offers white label software that businesses can design and manage across multiple distribution channels on the web and mobile. From debt to equity, from real estate to early stage investing and peer to peer lending, Katipult wants to ensure that “secure, flexible and legally compliant software infrastructure” is also in place, especially for businesses that need to safeguard their information.
For over eight years, the company has been led by CEO Brock Murray, CTO Doug McLean, and Chief Product Officer Pheak Meas. The founders have launched their company not in the heart of Silicon Valley or Silicon Alley but in Calgary – a city that is dominate by Oil & Gas. Today the firm has grown from three employees to 20. Katipult has processed around $75 million in transactions from 20 different companies. By being recognized as Canada’s most innovative fintech company, Katipult hopes to join the ranks of other Canadian tech giants, including Hootsuite, Mozilla Firefox, Shopify, and Slack.
