Our Story

FINCURA was built by bankers who believe technology can fuel new growth in commercial lending.

Max Blumenthal and Cody Putre founded FINCURA after they saw too many financial institutions with workflows interrupted and slowed down by error-prone manual data entry.

With their industry experience as lenders, they formed a world-class team of data scientists, designers and software engineers. Together they built the technology for automated spreading, covenant monitoring, and borrower management.

FINCURA’s customers are visionary banks and funds looking for new ways to drive growth and efficiency.
