Why we invested

When the Octopus Ventures Fintech team set out to discover the pioneers at the forefront of the banking and data analytics revolution, we knew that AI stood to make a colossal impact. Beyond the tech sector, banks and other financial services are the big, early adopters – and they're data rich. Mosaic Smart Data presented the most compelling solution to bringing global banks’ technology stacks out of the 20th century and into the future, and we were delighted to support Matthew and the team as they play their part in the revolution.
