Winner of Tearsheet’s Best New Alternative Data Product: Facteus’ Enlightmint

Tearsheet recently recognized the winners of our 2020 Data Awards. We’re running a short series on the winners and other top applicants as part of our ongoing coverage of financial data. Tearsheet’s Resilience Awards are currently open for submissions.

Tearsheet’s New Alternative Data Product Award is intended to go to the best new alternative data product on the market. Our judges looked at submissions against 4 criteria:

  • Creativity
  • Innovative thinking
  • Consumer value
  • Results related to KPIs

The context

COVID-19 turned the economy upside down in 2020. Business and economic models built on years of regular, expected economic data were thrown out the window and people across all industries were grappling with ‘what’s the new normal?’ 

The product

Launched in April 2020, Enlightmint is an analytics tool that brings transactional data sourced directly from financial institutions and payments companies to business and financial analysts. The product was developed by Oregon-based Facteus, a provider of actionable insights from financial data.

  • Three years of historical transaction data on over 15M active cards, including from Millennials, Gen Z, and early adopters of innovative financial products and technologies.
  • Spending trends, transaction frequency and velocity, purchase price movements, competitive set analysis, and demographic and cohort segmentation.
  • Transaction data on a state or urban level
