It’s Not the End of the Road

Episode 69: It’s Not the End of the Road
Guest: Rachel Carpenter

On this episode we have the founder and CEO of Intrinio, Rachel Carpenter. Intrinio is a disruptive, self-serve financial data marketplace launched in 2015 for investors, entrepreneurs, developers and students. Their data feeds power spreadsheets, quant models, fintech apps, website, and enterprise applications. Rachel’s responsibility includes strategy and positioning for Intrinio’s long-term growth. Rachel graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BA in Finance and Management. Rachel founded Intrinio with Joey French, another graduate from the University of Wisconsin, when they sparked an idea for a valuation service industry app they wanted to create. Many iterations later, Intrinio was designed. When fundraising, Rachel emphasizes the importance of telling a compelling story, a compelling problem, and delivering a passionate message instead of just preparing you financial plan, pitch deck, and other materials. Rachel believes that those who invest, invest because of the person and their passion. Intrinio’s current goal is to get as much data on the platforms as possible because the more types of data, the more types of products they’re able to power. Aside from her love for data, Rachel spends her free time as a board member for Community Action Stops Abuse, a domestic violence organization in Florida. For her, giving back has always been important. In addition to this, she’s a member of the Forbes Finance Council and the Data Coalition Advocating for Open Structure Data. Rachel leads her team at Intrinio in an effort to make financial data affordable and accessible, all while giving back to women and the community. How about that for an inspiring woman?
