If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
The advice I would give is “Stop and smell the roses.”
What problem does your business solve?
Although it’s 2022, serving businesses with various financial services is still largely manual, making it costly, risky & timely. What’s new is that with the advent of fintechs, business owners’ expectations are increasing. Service providers looking to complete can no longer collect financial information by having customers manually fill in forms & PDF scans while businesses share this financial information via email. It’s frustrating & resource-intensive for both the businesses & the lender. For service providers looking to compete in the market, Boss Insights offers an instant solution to gather the global leading source of business financial data (accounting, sales, banking), score it and offer a rules-based engine to suggest product offerings.
What is the inspiration behind your business?
Smarter Loans’ 2022 study found that SMBs remain underserved. It’s because it costs just as much to serve businesses looking for $25 million as it does a $250k loan.
Boss Insights is a Tech-meets-Fin story: Luke Moynihan, scaling Amazon, democratized data access. Former commercial banker, Keren Moynihan, working with businesses, saw a manual process. Boss Insights offers global-leading access to SMBs’ financial data & portals to originate/decision/monitor requests.
500,000 businesses were registered last year, and they cannot secure financing or other banking services easily. This is a drastic increase from the previous growth rate from 200,000 to 300,000 in the decade before 2020. These businesses cannot get served by the traditional market. As it is, businesses have a difficult time getting served in the market. If they are in any way different the chance of businesses getting access to loans or other services decreases.
The current market expects businesses to know the product they want, and come prepared with documents each and every time it’s requested. Boss Insights empowers financial service providers to get access to a platform with global leading access to financial data and the ability to originate, decision and monitor requests. It enables service providers to be able to offer personalized, data-driven services scalable and allows businesses to be measured on their data.
What is your magic sauce?

In a market of data aggregators – Boss Insights has global leading access to APIs that we built (1000+ to the industries 3-100+). In addition, we built an API development engine which allows us to add APIs as required by the industry. Lastly, we are an aggregator of other API aggregators. That means that if other data is required, we can easily connect to provide a complete solution. Here’s what that means from a practical perspective:
- Global leading: If an FI needs accounting, sales and banking data, Boss Insights can provide it with a single API
- API development engine: If new data sources (i.e. Amazon) are required, we can add them in days/weeks.
What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?
Currently, Boss Insights works with fintechs, private lenders and financial institutions. In the future, we will go to adjacent industries (eg. Insurance, Banking, Brokerage, Fintech, & E-Com/POS). We also hope to advance our product offerings by having an enhanced portal and an AI forecasting engine.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
The biggest challenge we have faced so far is having so much to do and so little time.
