In the first quarter of 2014, 23 Finovate alums raised more than $592 million

And as the second quarter draws to a close, it's clear that a comparable cohort of alums have kept the pace.

Over the course April, May, and June, 28 alums raised significant amounts of capital ranging from Gremln's $100,000 to the $65 million raised by Lending Club. The quarterly total of $594 million is almost exactly the same as the previous quarter.

And given that some amounts are undisclosed (I'm talking about you, Holvi, RevolutionCredit, and Tuition.io), we're confident that Finovate alums have notched their second $600 million fund-raising quarter in a row.

How does this compare with the less recent past? Very well, indeed. 

In the second quarter of 2013, 15 alums raised more than $200 million. This was a major improvement on the second quarter from 2012, which featured 14 companies raising more than $120 million. 

Total raised for Q2 2014 = $594 million

April -- $217 million raised by 11 companies
May --  $226 million raised by 11 companies
June -- $151 million raised by six companies

For a fintech company to succeed outside of the digital realm in the physical world of print is not an easy feat. It makes sense, however, that a company with as much spunk as LearnVest has been able to make a splash with a book.

Alexa Von Tobel, LearnVest Founder and CEO, has been a rising star in the personal finance realm lately. The New York-based CEO released her own book, Financially Fearless, at the end of last year, and it has recently been listed as the #5 New York Times Best Sellers list in the category of Advice, How-to, and Miscellaneous.

Additionally, it reached:

    • Wall Street Journal Best Seller #1 hardcover in Business and #5 Hardcover in Non-Fiction categories 
    • Chicago Tribune Best Seller #5 in Hardcover Non-Fiction category 
    • Apple iBooks Best of 2013
    • Amazon Best Seller (during the weeks of December 22 and 29, 2013)

    • Two free tickets to attend LearnVest Live in either New York City, Boston or San Francisco.
    • Exclusive access to January's premium live, online event - featuring Alexa and covering what you need to know to set achievable goals in 2014.

If an investment portfolio gets optimized through an online investment advisor, do brick and mortar brokers make a sound?

As noted in today's Wall Street Journal, many of the kinds of services that once were accessible only by high net worth investors patronizing financial advisors and planners in person are now available to the rest of us. This includes everything from using computer algorithms to make investment decisions to automatic portfolio rebalancing and asset allocation.

And of the seven companies highlighted in the column for helping make this possible, every single one is a Finovate alum.

In fact, two of the seven - FutureAdvisor and LearnVest - will be demoing their latest technology on the Finovate stage in New York next week for FinovateFall 2013.

The reasons for the growth in online investment advisory are as varied as the companies themselves. Some cite a new generation of investors far more comfortable with both handling their own finances and trusting the Internet to help. Others suggest that with Wall Street falling into disfavor in the wake of the financial crisis, more investors are willing to seek out non-traditional - and less expensive - sources of information and advice.

Bill Doyle, an analyst for Forrester Research who has studied the industry for more than a decade and is quoted in the column, puts it this way: "I'm paying a lot more attention this time around because the software required to transform this industry finally works."

Whatever the reason, there's no doubt that venture capitalists believe this time is different. Consider the funding success of the above seven companies in the past two years ago:

Note also that Wealthfront, which helps get investors into low-cost diversified portfolios, has assets under management (AUM) of $300 million. Betterment has a similar model and has AUM of $250 million.
  • Finovate-F-Logo.jpgThe Austin business Journal ranks Q2ebanking #29 of Austin-based Largest Private Companies.
  • City National partners with cloud accounting platform Xero.
  • Forrester Research names Ping Identity a leader in Identity and Access Management Suites, Q3 2013 report.
  • Allre and miiCard partner for First Complete Platform to Sell a Home Purely Online.
  • Wipit-powered Boost Mobile Wallet to provide Quick Check Service.
  • WSJ column takes a look at online investment advisors like Wealthfront, Personal Capital, Jemstep, and FutureAdvisor that use algorithms. Meet FutureAdvisor at FinovateFall in New York.
  • Float Money partners with credit reporting agency eCredable to offer consumers interest-free loans. See Float Money at FinovateFall in New York next week.
  • Finovate alums Betterment and LearnVest highlighted in Wall Street Journal column on innovations in the online investment advisory business. Watch LearnVest demo their technology next week at FinovateFall.

So what do fintech innovators, and Finovate alumni, like Mint, Manilla, and Dashlane have in common with the likes of the Chrome Web Lab, Tom Hanks' Electric City, and Cracked.com?

How about earning honors from the esteemed judges of the 2013 Webby Awards?


Thumbnail image for ManillaLogo.jpgManilla made the most of its showing at the 17th Annual Webby Awards, picking up honors in three categories (Utilities & Services, Web Services & Applications, and Financial Services/Banking). But the biggest winner among the Finovate-affiliated nominees was Mint. Mint won the Webby People's Voice award in the Financial Services/Banking category, along with earning an honor in the Best User Experience category.

DashlaneLogo.jpg

Also representing well at the Webby Awards was Dashlane, coming in for Web Services & Applications honors, and a trio of Finovate alumnus that impressed judges in the Financial Services/Banking category: LearnVest, UBank's PeopleLikeU, and Kapitall.

The Webby Awards have been given out every year since 1996 by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS). The Academy includes among its members such luminaries as David Bowie, Vint Cerf, and Arianna Huffington.

The Webbys provide two major awards per category: the Webby Award and the Webby People's Voice Award. The latter award is determined by an online vote.

LearnVest - FinovateFall 2012
Thumbnail image for YodleeLogo2012.jpg

With 300 fintech innovators already taking advantage of Yodlee's 10-month old accelerator program, the company's sights are set on still more companies coming on board. In fact, Yodlee anticipates growth of more than 50% by the end of the year.

One of the key features of the program is free access to Yodlee's API, which brings with it the ability to draw from a wealth of financial data, from bank accounts to rewards campaigns. Program companies have taken this data and run with it, building everything from eWallets to new lending services.

Aside from its role in "paying it forward" (fintech edition), Yodlee has been a very successful outfit in its own right. The company has more than 40 million users and $100 million in capital, with 20% of its customers coming from outside the United States.

It's worth pointing out that Yodlee's accelerated startups include a handful of Finovate alumni such as EZBOB and FreeAgent (both companies fresh from appearances at FinovateEurope). Other alumni taking advantage of Yodlee's platform include Credit Karma, Xero, and LearnVest.

Success with the accelerator program, which was launched in May 2012, may be what has encouraged the company to launch its API incubator program to cater to a different subset of startups. So far, Yodlee has been able to incubate 10 companies, including Finovate alumn, Planwise.

Yodless was last on the Finovate stage in September 2012 as part of FinovateFall in New York. Watch a demo of Yodlee in action here, as they present their small business platform.

We wrapped up FinovateFall in New York City about a week ago. Over the course of two days, 64 companies give seven-minute demos to an audience of around 1,100. We've summarized the information and presented in our latest Finovate Report, Fall Edition.

Introducing:

The Best New Products at FinovateFall 2012

This post-show wrap-up is designed to help those that weren't there get a better understanding of the major themes. And for those that were in attendance, it's a box score to compare with your own notes and impressions.

In the report, we looked at the three big trends that emerged at FinovateFall:

    • Small businesses get the same financial tools as bigger businesses
    • Security moves past the PIN 
    • Beyond plastic, the mobile wallet is here

And we profiled each of the seven companies voted Best of Show by the attendees at the event (note 1):
