A long time ago in a galaxy far far away Wells Fargo Bank used to have this program where you could pull financial data from all your accounts to one page. They called in “One Look” and it was truly awesome. But in February of 2005 they stopped the service saying that it was not economical to maintain. I was heart broken. This “One Look” service allowed me to log into one interface and get all my financial data.
I sat down with the CEO of the company, Aaron Patzer yesterday and he gave me a complete walk through on the product (although I could not write about it until now due to press embargoes). I am putting it on the line here. If someone held a gun to my head and made me choose a company to invest here at the techcrunch40 conference its a no brainier. I would be all in on Mint. I love the product and I think you will also. Its a true godsend for people who have multiple credit cards/back accounts/debit cards/ brokerage accounts.
Mint also can save you money by suggesting alternatives based on your spending habits… say if you travel a lot it will suggest a certain credit card that gives you miles… or maybe it will suggest a higher cash back card if your just using it for general purchases.
Pretty dope huh?
Mint’s funding has so far come from strategic angel investors, including former or current senior executives from: eBay, Intuit, Google, Yahoo, Charles Schwab, Wilson Sonsini, Reuters, Adteractive and Weblogic/BEA and primary funding from First Round Capitol.
They also gave me this sweet Mint shirt. I guess they know the way to my heart =P.
Mint has opened its doors to the public today if you want to get any account.
The Signup button seems to be grayed out… maybe I posted to soon… I will go find them and see.
