San Francisco – February 26, 2019 – Startgrid and Eagle Investment Systems LLC, a BNY Mellon company, today announced a strategic alliance that will enable BNY Mellon and Eagle clients to centralize the management of innovation scouting and delivery that improves collaboration across teams and geographies to accelerate time to market. 

Today, teams around the world are in pursuit of finding the best technology to meet the dynamic needs of their business. The Startgrid platform helps to centralize these efforts, providing a cohesive view of the fintech market alongside internal innovation efforts. A shared view of the pipeline, along with the ability to compare and assess the fit of various fintech solutions, provides better transparency and brings stakeholders more directly into the scouting process. 

“We are using the Startgrid platform across our firm to improve how we communicate around innovation” said Lucien Foster, Head of Digital Partnerships at BNY Mellon. “It’s an important tool to help us manage our interactions with start-ups and manage our internal business needs. It additionally helps us target and develop engagements with the right partners across our business units.” 

“Both Eagle and BNY Mellon’s clients are constantly looking at new solutions to address their business problems and the Startgrid platform will help our clients effectively share and manage the information workflow across their organizations,” said Joel Kornblum, Global Head of Strategic Alliances at Eagle.  

“As disruption of the financial services industry continues to accelerate, much of the leading-edge technology in the market will be developed within fintech ecosystems around the world. BNY Mellon, Eagle and their clients are now better positioned to identify these innovators, partner with them, and access the global fintech community as a source of long-term competitive advantage” said Peter Gardner, Founder and CEO of Startgrid.
