Consumer Fintech & Insurtech

We are inspired by the innovation impacting consumers’ financial lives. Every aspect of the consumer fintech landscape is being disrupted, and as an investor at Greycroft, you will have the opportunity to partner with the most exciting entrepreneurs in this space. New technologies and applications are challenging and displacing the legacy brands by meeting consumers where they are and helping them achieve their personal financial goals. We look for companies across the globe delivering better user experiences, greater transparency, and financial well-being.

Enterprise Software

Representative Investments

Our Enterprise team is proud to partner with founders building next-generation intelligent enterprise applications that enable decentralized operating models and leverage APIs to create a more effective, modular infrastructure. We believe that essential business processes like revenue and talent management, along with cross-functional communication, are the linchpins of industry leadership. We also believe that there are untapped opportunities in vertical software, particularly solutions purpose-built for under-tooled industries with system-of-record potential like logistics, industrials, and real estate.

Enterprise Fintech & Insurtech

Representative Investments

Every company is becoming a fintech. We are looking to partner with founders that have built unique ways of productizing and distributing financial services, as well as the infrastructure to embed these services into any platform. We believe that winners in this space will leverage developer-friendly APIs to integrate their offerings, digitize manual workflows, and unlock new market segments by democratizing access across asset classes and services.
