A Boston fintech startup is powering Thomson Reuters’ new investment tool
Boston Business Journal - 04/12/2017
Three Northeastern University graduates founded Elsen in 2014 and the fintech company participated in the Boston-based nonprofit accelerator FinTech Sandbox in 2015. Elsen has raised $750,000 from Hyperplane Venture Capital, serial entrepreneur Bret Siarkowski, and an Accomplice-affiliated syndicate of angel investors.
Zac Sheffer, co-founder and CEO of Elsen, said he saw the need for a more technologically advanced way for investment firms to test their strategies against sophisticated financial data during a stint at Credit Suisse.
