Fintech growing strong in Delaware
Delaware in a Fintech Future, a report highlighting Delaware’s role in the rapidly changing financial services industry, was released today. The report, researched and authored by the Delaware Prosperity Partnership, First State Fintech Lab and the University of Delaware’s Institute for Public Administration, details the latest developments and fast-moving technological innovation in financial services.
With brand power that includes JPMorgan Chase, Capital One, M&T Bank, WSFS Bank, and Citibank, the talent pool in banking and financial services has grown exponentially and accounts for 9% of all jobs in Delaware, the highest share of any U.S. state.
And now, in addition to being a destination location for traditional banking, fintech companies from around the world are choosing Delaware. Examples include Irvine, California-based Acorns, which opened a satellite operation at The Mill in Wilmington, Delaware; Delaware-based Fair Square Financial, which recently expanded and moved into a 22,000 square-foot facility in Wilmington, Delaware; and Marlette Funding, which is expanding and creating 200+ new jobs and making a $7.5M capital investment in New Castle County, Delaware.
Defining the fintech sector can be complicated, according to John Taylor, Director of Economic Research at the Delaware Prosperity Partnership.
“Some are referring to fintech as a standalone new industry,” Taylor said. “Certainly, the term is relatively new, but a closer look suggest that all financial services companies are becoming fintech companies, including the well-established incumbents as well as early-stage startups.”
No matter how broad or narrow the definition, Delaware is becoming the location-of-choice for financial and business services.
- Delaware has the highest relative concentration of financial services jobs of any U.S. state. Among U.S. counties, New Castle County ranks third.
- Since 2009, nearly 200 fintech patents were assigned to Delaware-based individuals and companies, ranking first in the United States on a per capita basis, and fifth in absolute terms.
- Finance accounts for more than one-fifth of our state’s GDP, the largest contribution of any sector.
- Delaware has been a magnet for out-of-state direct investment by financial services firms in recent years, with $725 million invested since 2010. Wilmington is the leading destination in our region for this investment.
“We should think of fintech as the next wave of innovation in banking,” says Taylor. “Advances in machine learning and data analytics are enabling new ways for consumers to access financial services.”

Uplandme, Inc. raises seven figures for a new property trading game
Uplandme, Inc. has closed a financing round, which was led by Finlab EOS VC Fund and with the participation of several angel investors. FinLab EOS VC Fund is a venture capital fund backed by both Block.one, the publisher of the blockchain protocol EOSIO, and FinLab AG, one of Europe’s largest company builders and investors focused on financial services technologies.
The funds will be used to support the initial development and launch of Upland, a digital property trading game that blurs the boundaries between real and virtual worlds. Players buy, sell, and trade properties based on real-world addresses. An in-game currency called UPX will power the economy of Upland. Players will be able to complete property collections, use location-based features and trade their properties on a marketplace.
“We invested into Uplandme, Inc. because we like the genuine idea of a virtual property market powered by the EOS Blockchain and the very experienced and passionate team behind it,” said Stefan Schuetze, Managing Director of FinLab EOS VC Fund. “Blockchain and specifically EOSIO allows the creation of completely new game mechanics that were not possible before.”
“We are excited to work with Uplandme, Inc. as we believe they present a very unique and differentiated concept and that gaming and digital collectable companies, such as Uplandme, Inc., are a great application of Blockchain technologies, in particular EOSIO,” commented Paul Grotowski, COO of EOS VC.
“We have chosen the EOSIO blockchain software because it offers the best foundation to create a strong casual gaming experience where players engage quickly and can continuously enjoy the game without the hassle and need to understand today’s complicated world of Blockchain. We are excited to work with Finlab and EOS VC to leverage their EOSIO background and financial expertise which are very important for us as we build out Upland,” said Dirk Lueth, Co-founder of Uplandme, Inc.
