FinTech, Q2, Self Financial, tapNpay, Credit Unions, Self Visa Credit Card, Credit Management, Credit Score, Austin, Dallas, Texas, USAWhen you think about finance or FinTech, Austin might not be the first city that comes to mind. But the reality is far different from what we may assume. Austin is an emerging centre for FinTech, and entrepreneurs are seeking to create new ways of approaching this age-old industry.

Dallas and Austin, in particular, are one of the nation’s leading business hubs and have naturally also boasted the financial industry. This western metropolis, like other tech capitals in the US, has played a massive role in expanding the country’s FinTech sector. 

FinTech companies in and around Texas are taking different approaches to reshape the financial sector. While one FinTech might be developing a novel way to make life insurance more accessible, another is reshaping the world of digital banking.

Here are 3 innovative FinTech companies:

Q2 is a financial experience company dedicated to providing digital banking and lending solutions to banks, credit unions, alternative finance, and FinTech companies in the U.S. and internationally. With comprehensive end-to-end solution sets, Q2 enables its partners to provide cohesive, secure, data-driven experiences to every account holder – from consumers to small businesses and corporate. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Q2 has offices worldwide and is publicly traded on the NYSE under the stock symbol QTWO.

Self (formerly Self Lender) is a venture-backed FinTech startup with a mission to help people build credit and savings. With their step-by-step credit building process, Self-builders could access the Credit Builder Account and the Self Visa® Credit Card with no hard credit inquiry. CEO James Garvey founded Self in 2015 after making a mistake with automatic payments on his credit card. By the time he caught it, his credit score had tanked. In searching for a way to rebuild his credit, he saw some of the challenges faced by the more than 100 million Americans with low or no credit.

tapNpay is a FinTech company that has developed a new patented payment service working with mobile carriers globally as billing agents. Their product is built for the toll road industry and works in a way similar to other payment systems like Visa, Mastercard or Paypal. tapNpay holds a variety of patents that will change how toll authorities interact with their customers. Their team includes highly-experienced toll industry, SaaS and telecoms industry direct carrier billing professionals, and seasoned technology and financial partners.
