Monit Teams with JAM FINTOP Banktech to Integrate Its Mobile Financial Platform into the Business Technology Offerings of More than Sixty-Six Community Banks

February 28, 2023

A new, exclusive agreement positions Monit at the epicenter of the community banking ecosystem.

Monit, the award-winning mobile financial platform for small businesses, announced it has signed an exclusive agreement with JAM FINTOP Banktech, a $150M investment fund designed to help accelerate technology adoption at community banks across the United States.  As an extension of Monit’s previously announced $5.2 million round financing, the new agreement will include a new investment from JAM FINTOP Banktech and a commercial partnership that expands the reach of Monit’s capabilities to the investment fund’s extensive network of community banks.

JAM FINTOP Banktech is an investment fund from JAM Special Opportunity Ventures, an affiliate of Jacobs Asset Management, and FINTOP Capital. The partnership will integrate Monit’s acclaimed mobile financial platform with community banks looking to embrace technology to grow business banking portfolios and be more competitive. Taken collectively, the $650+ billion of combined assets of the fund’s limited partner (LP) banks would make it equal to the fifth largest bank in the nation. 

More than 80 percent of small businesses fail due to poor cash flow management, and while data sources are available to give banks information on the health and needs of larger commercial companies, the disparity when it comes to serving small and medium-sized (SMB) businesses is significant. Monit offers an innovative two-sided financial platform for both SMB owners and the banks who offer the technology to customers - a business guidance platform paired with advanced analytics that allows banks to provide cashflow tools, tailored insights resident in the bank’s digital experience, and solutions to acquire and deepen the bank’s relationships with SMBs. 

“We are excited to add JAM FINTOP Banktech to our team of amazing investors, and its community of LP banks to the Monit family,” said Steve Dow, CEO of Monit. “The partnership goes well beyond investment.  As a team of bankers and technologists ourselves, our visions are aligned in helping America’s business owners thrive, and supporting the drive of community bankers to add value as trusted advisors to those businesses. We are excited to further our existing LP relationships and work with the broader network to offer solutions with positive returns for both banks and their business customers.”

Monit creates strong connections between banks and their SMB customers. Banks provide the Monit app to their customers, empowering them with predictive financial tools to better manage their business. With a bank-branded Monit app, SMB owners can automatically forecast cash flow, monitor business vitals, and get customized insights at their fingertips. For banks, the Monit bank platform provides much-needed data visibility and the ability to understand, target, and connect with small business customers with resources they need, when they need them.


“The community banks in our portfolio range from $1 billion to $50 billion in assets, but they don’t have the resources to develop this type of technology the way the massive global banks do,” said Matt Kelley, Director of JAM FINTOP Banktech.  “Business banking is driving growth and our network of banks are actively looking for solutions to deepen relationships with customers and compete with the offerings of larger banks. We are excited to join efforts with Monit as our first US-based investment to get the most innovative tools in the hands of bankers so they can serve their SMB customers more effectively, efficiently, and profitably.”

Monit launched in 2020, and has already won numerous awards and coverage for its technology, including Finovate Best in Show, Aite Spotlight, FinXTechConnect, and has been the focus of articles in American Banker and other publications.
