NEW YORK, NY (January 6, 2022) ForwardAI, a fintech providing aggregated access to accounting & business data and analysis, announced today that it has been selected as a finalist for Emerging Fintech Company in the 5th annual LendIt Fintech Industry Awards.

The LendIt Fintech Industry Awards honor the world’s leading fintech influencers and innovators in 14 unique categories. Emerging Fintech Company is awarded to the most promising young fintech company in any vertical and highlights companies that have a real possibility of being a leader in their category in the years to come.

“On behalf of the ForwardAI team, we would like to express our profound appreciation to the panel for recognizing our achievements,” said Nick Chandi, CEO and co-founder of ForwardAI. “We’re extremely proud of our growth since we launched last year, releasing our Precise API, which includes PreciseMatch™, along with two other products, Predict-as-a-Service, and Access. Through partnerships with banks, credit unions, lenders, and other fintechs, we’re changing the future of small business lending and making the whole underwriting process easier for both lenders and borrowers.”

Since launching in April 2021, ForwardAI has brought the following products and features to market:

  • Precise is a single API that directly integrates with a growing number of small business software products, providing direct access to accounting, financial, and business data. It offers critical financial data points and analysis, including raw, historical, and predictive information on business clients.
    • PreciseMatch: A feature built into the Precise API that automates reconciliation of accounting and banking data by cross-validating accounting systems with synced banking accounts.
  • Access is a pre-built partner portal that can be used by smaller financial institutions and/or institutions without big development teams – no coding required.
  • Predict-as-a Service is a cash flow forecasting and planning tool for financial institutions or fintechs that want to extend their business offerings by offering predictive data solutions to their clients.

In collaboration with LendIt Fintech, ForwardAI recently produced a whitepaper on how direct data access improves small business lending. The report, which is free to download here, highlights how lenders use business and financial data, apply technology to predict borrower outcomes, and drive credit decisions, outlining specific customer experience and process improvement opportunities.

Winners will be announced on Tuesday, February 8, 2022 at the LendIt Nexus Dealmakers Summit in Miami, FL.
