🔮 Method Financial was founded in 2021 after our founders experienced first-hand the difficulties of embedding debt repayment into their app (GradJoy). They decided to build their own embedded banking service that allows developers to easily retrieve and pay any of their users' debts – including credit cards, student loans, car loans, and mortgages – all through a single API.
As a Top 10 Fintech Startup, we’re focused on providing the opportunity for ambitious and entrepreneurial individuals to have high levels of impact at the forefront of the fintech space. Continuous improvement, collaboration, and a clear mission bring us together in service of delivering the best products for our users. We are a remote-flexible team, striving to set up the best environment for everyone to be successful and we are excited to continue to grow.
We recently closed a $16 million Series A funding round led by Andreessen Horowitz, with participation from Truist Ventures, Y Combinator (Method’s a Y Combinator graduate), Abstract Ventures, SV Angel and others. We're also backed by founders and leaders of Truebill, Upstart, and Goldman Sachs.
