Xignite’s placement on this list recognizes their tremendous growth and position as the force that fuels innovation and entrepreneurship in the fintech industry by powering many of the major fintech companies today with its robust market data APIs and its cloud-based platform. Xignite makes the access and integration of market data simple, allowing fintech entrepreneurs to focus on growing their business while also proving as a highly cost-effective solution.

“We are very honored to be included in this list of top-notch private companies,” said Stephane Dubois, CEO of Xignite. “This category is a real testament to the rapid expansion of financial technology as demand for innovative solutions continues to grow. We are in an industry that is ripe for disruption and Xignite is dedicated to continuing our work in powering the fintech revolution.”

“The AlwaysOn Global 250 are the best-of-breed private companies in consumer and business-to-business applications, and cloud and mobile infrastructure sectors—representing the fastest growing and most highly valued new companies on the planet,” explains AlwaysOn Founder and Editor, Tony Perkins. “The consumer companies continue to explode along with the mobile boom and the proliferation of billions of other connected devices that make up the long heralded ‘Internet of Things,’ and the business market continues to be reinvented by a new generation of big data and analytics companies and new efficiencies in cloud technology and services.”

The winners of the award will be honored at the Silicon Valley Innovation Summit 2015 on July 8-9, 2015 in Mountain View, CA.
