We Are Disrupting FinTech
Accern was born in late 2013 out of a desire to automate the discovery of early financial news. We wanted to eliminate the manual process of going to multiple news websites to find actionable news story. Furthermore, we wanted to eliminate the cost of clients subscribing to multiple news platforms and data feeds. By building upon this concept, we rapidly grew to covering over 1 billion public news websites, blogs, social media websites and public financial documents such as SEC filings. With a skilled team of PhDs and computer engineers, we have positioned ourselves at No.1 in finance news sentiment in terms of our web coverage.
