Fintech and Fort Lewis College Power Durango's Growth
Along Colorado’s western slope, the combination of a growing financial tech (fintech) sector and top-notch engineering talent coming out of Fort Lewis College has Durango well positioned for the future.
Mercury Payment Systems – a leader in credit card processing and payments – long had been at the center of everything Durango tech, and that’s continued since Vantiv acquired them in 2014. What’s sprouted is an intriguing mix of fintech that often can be traced back to Vantiv/Mercury. Upstarts like Obsidian and Monetary are building out a presence that’s quickly making headlines.
