When built on MX's platform of clean data, clients see a 30% increase in NPS scores.

The Series B round brings the company’s total equity financing to $175 million. The new investment reflects the value of financial technology data to banks, credit unions and other fintech companies, and will be used to support the company’s growth, forging new partnerships and investments, developing the next round of industry-leading innovations, and accelerating its hiring efforts.

Growth Partners, Point72 Ventures, Sorenson Ventures, Pelion Venture Partners, and Cross Creek Capital; from existing investors Industry Ventures, Digital Garage, TTV Capital, and Commerce Ventures; as well as from customers National Bank of Canada and Washington Federal Bank.
