ABA + Canapi

Connecting Community Banks to Promising Fintech Partners

ABA has long supported bank-fintech partnerships, and we are constantly pursuing opportunities to encourage bank-driven innovation. We believe that by connecting banks with innovating entrepreneurs we can support partnerships that tackle banking’s toughest problems, ultimately improving experiences for customers.

ABA is a proud investor in Canapi’s two venture funds and member of the Canapi Alliance. Canapi is a financial technology venture platform investing in early-to-growth-stage companies that offer bank-friendly business models and technologies. With our investment, ABA will ensure that community banks are engaged deeply with Canapi and their unique challenges are top of mind as Canapi evaluates fintech investments. This relationship will also allow ABA to capture unique insights on fintech market trends and notable startups and share them broadly across ABA’s membership.
