    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.

    Yesterday, Netbanker provided insight from a recent briefing with Intuit about Mint.com's new co-branded offering for FIs.

    Here are some quick highlights from the extensive coverage:

    • Of Intuit's 1,100 online banking clients, 500 use Intuit's existing PFM, FinanceWorks
    • The new co-branded environment provides another monetization model for Intuit's Mint unit, who's current business model relies on third-party ads and offers
    • A typical bank has 10% of its customer base registered with Mint (though the active user base is much smaller)
    • Current Mint users will be able to automatically upload their spending history and aggregated accounts to the Mint platform within their online banking experience

    The Intuit-provided mockups below show what the co-branded user experience will look like inside an online banking platform. Overall, it will be very similar to the existing Mint.com experience, one of the few differences being that users will not see third-party offers, unless the bank decides to run them.

    Mint advice and account aggregation features:

    Clicking on Mint in the co-branded experience shows the familiar spending analysis features:

     Other familiar Mint-branded functionality:

    A few financial institutions will begin piloting Mint in their online banking platform soon, and will make it widely available near the end of this year.

    Mint.com demoed at the first Finovate in 2007 and will return to the Finovate stage this Spring in San Francisco where it will launch its latest development. To be one of the first to see Mint's new technology, get your ticket here.

    Mint.com, who had the industry debut of its PFM at the first Finovate conference in 2007, announced yesterday that it has surpassed 10 million registered users. It also released some growth figures:

      • Tracks over $80 billion in credit and debit transactions
      • Tracks almost $1 trillion in loans and assets
      • After being acquired by Intuit in 2009, the number of banks it integrates with has increased from around 8,000 to 15,000
      • 70% of users access Mint using a mobile device

    In unrelated news, TechCrunch discovered the code today for an advertisement of a Mint-branded debit card. The yet-to-be-announced card appears to be in direct competition with Simple, who just debuted a spending reports feature yesterday.

    To learn more about Simple, watch its FinovateFall 2011 demo.
