Greenboard Announces $4.5M Seed Round from Base10 Partners to be "Rippling for financial compliance and operations"

Share This Article

NEW YORK, May 8, 2024-- Greenboard, a new compliance and operations software company for financial services, announced today that the company has completed a $4.5 million Series Seed funding round led by Base 10 Partners, with participation from Y Combinator, General Catalyst, Wayfinder Ventures, Liquid2 Ventures, Twenty Two Ventures, Rogue Capital, Transpose Platform, and others. The funding will accelerate the company's progress towards building a singular, AI-powered platform to handle management of the entirety of financial firms' compliance programs, and eventually all back office processes.

"We founded Greenboard after witnessing how cumbersome and outdated compliance software is at most financial firms," said Dave Feldman, Co-founder and CEO of Greenboard. "This fundraise, along with our partnership with Base10, will help us enable financial institutions to operate their back office teams at a higher standard, with half of the headcount. We're starting with compliance, where we see incredible need from an underserved set of users."

Founded in June 2023 by Dave Feldman and Ed Schembor (CTO), Greenboard already allows financial institutions to replace outdated software with an AI-native compliance operating system for use cases such as Know Your Employee (KYE) and Communications Archiving. The pair met as freshman at Johns Hopkins, and have since gone on to lead teams at Amazon, Hive AI, and Guideline.

"The Greenboard team has been great to work with. The administrative benefits of the system are tangible, in that it helps us detect risk and automate more of our compliance program than previously possible. The software is also easy to use, which matters a lot in a world where we compete to attract the best financial advisors to our firm," said Brook Powers, CEO, Fiduciary Financial Advisors, a Greenboard customer.

Greenboard's core product thesis is that GPU-powered computational statistics will eliminate much of the tedium in back office financial work. "It wasn't always the case that financial firms could count on cheap hard drives and cloud computing to keep records," said Dave Feldman. "Not long ago when filing cabinets were the norm, financial recordkeeping required substantial resources. It turns out that computers are cheaper and better than humans at storing files by such a wide margin that there are no longer roles for file clerks in the economy."

Similarly, Greenboard's goal is to expand upon the past advances in financial recordkeeping via automating the preliminary analysis of information required to drive back office and compliance processes.

"Greenboard's innovative approach to financial compliance and operations aligns perfectly with our investment philosophy at Base10," said Rexhi Dollaku, Partner at Base10 Partners. "We believe in supporting visionary founders like Dave and Ed, who are revolutionizing how financial institutions manage their back office processes. With this investment, we are confident that Greenboard will continue to lead the way in delivering AI-powered solutions that drive efficiency and effectiveness in the financial services industry."
