What we do

Pave is building a Cashflow API that allows fintech developers and data scientists to connect their data sources and retrieve clean & unified insights into their consumers’ spending habits, bills, earnings profile, and account health.

We're abstracting the data cleaning and transformation efforts necessary to get a single view of a consumer’s finances so that fintech companies can rapidly build budgeting features, recommendations engines, risk models, and more.

We believe that by lowering the friction of extracting financial insights from the growing number of data sources, we can help accelerate the development of innovative and inclusive financial products. We’re on a mission to enable builders to reinvent and lower the cost of financial services.


There are a growing number of companies helping people gain access to digital financial services, whether it’s low-interest loans, payment installment solutions, integrated insurance offerings, fee-less banking, personalized budgeting, wage advances, or investment solutions.

We believe financial services will exist for every consumer segment, especially underserved segments including female professionals, refugee communities, creators, immigrants, retirees, gig workers, and so forth. We are not original in this thought - this is already happening.

Building equitable financial services for underserved consumer segments requires expensive resources, infrastructure, and analysis into new types of datasets. However, the cost to clean, transform, and analyze these new datasets is high, and every company is forced to do the same bespoke work on the same data sources. This is significant time and cost, and impeding the mission around expanding financial inclusion.

We're 3x founders with a history of launching successful data products, and we're partnered with awesome fintech investors including Bessemer Ventures, Village Global, Better Tomorrow Ventures, 8VC, and execs from Coinbase, Chime, and Sofi.

Everyone has a friend or two who's on the hunt for a new job. Now's your chance—if you know anyone who could be a good fit for one of our roles, you're eligible to receive $5,000 if we hire them!
