Splash Financial Named to the 2020 CB Insights Fintech 250 List of Fastest-Growing Fintech Startups
Splash Financial honored for its student loan refinancing marketplace


Splash Financial has been named to CB Insight’s third annual Fintech 250, a prestigious list of emerging private companies working on groundbreaking financial technology.

“We’re proud to, once again, recognize the 250 best private fintech companies globally. This year’s Fintech 250 represents 25 countries and spans 19 categories – reimagining everything from retail banking and crypto, to insurance and asset management,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “The previous Fintech 250 class raised more than $22 billion in investor financing and saw more than 20 exits after being recognized, and we expect this year’s class will have similar success as they continue to transform how people and businesses spend, save, borrow, and invest their money.”

Cleveland-based Splash Financial is a leading student loan refinancing marketplace and technology platform that partners with credit unions and banks to deliver on its mission: to help people save money on their student loans.

Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights Intelligence Unit selected Splash Financial for the Fintech 250 from a pool of 16,000 companies based on several factors. These factors include patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.


“We are proud to be recognized as among the top fin tech companies in the world by CB Insights,“ said Splash CEO Steve Muszynski. “Since our founding in 2013, we’ve been steadfast in delivering on our mission to help people save money on their student loans.”

In 2020, Splash achieved a number of notable milestones: over $9 billion in refinancing requests, more than 150,000 accounts, over $12 million in Series A funding, and over 45 new hires. Splash continues to expand its lender network, supporting new customer acquisition for credit unions and banks. “We’re energized by the measurable impact that we’re making today, and we’re always innovating to help even more people save money tomorrow,” said Muszynski.
