About Us

Building the future of cash management.

Trovata is a data-driven enterprise fintech platform that is 20 years in the making.

Our Founder & CEO has spent his entire career in finance at both public and private high-growth companies – CPA at Deloitte; Controller roles; SEC Reporting at Amazon; and CFO of three tech startups since 2005. At each stop along the journey, cash & reporting have always been a major focus. In addition, he had a front row seat to the transformation of enterprise IT by AWS as a co-founder in his last startup.

Along with these experiences, we recognized two major trends that led to the development of our underlying thesis: (1) the rise of consumer bank aggregators driving fintech would lead to direct APIs for commercial banking and treasury services from all major banks globally (Open Banking); and (2) the cloud transformation of enterprise IT would lead to major disruption in finance and treasury operations.
