Get frictionless financial data in just a few minutes!

Read the docs to give yourself (& your customers) superpowers
Why do I need Venice?
- disparate data sources & schemas to try and unify
- complex data pipelines & API upgrades to build & maintain
- unreliable infrastructure because your focus is on business logic
- data cleaning & enrichment, if you have any time left over that is
These add massive risk & cost to all (especially to your customers if you're slow to launch).
What is Venice?
Venice is building open source infrastructure to enable the frictionless movement of financial data. Sign up to get financial data in minutes.
Our first product is a fully hosted backend with an integrated Plaid data pipeline that enables developers (frontend devs / no code tools / data analysts) to build fintech apps or internal tools in a weekend, saving them months of effort and cost.
We're building a future where developers can leave the hard stuff to us (data engineering, enrichment, pipelines, normalization/unification, APIs, db admin, security) and focus exclusively on de-risking their startups with great user experiences & biz model + distribution innovation.
Simple things should be simple, but complex things should be possible.
Never want to touch code? We support that. Want to dive deep into GraphQL or add a custom pipeline into or out of Venice? We also support (& encourage) that!
Let us handle the hard data engineering & complexity of sync pipelines across thousands of financial institutions and data sources. We're here to give you & your customers superpowers and make building one-off infrastructure a thing of the past. Your customer's data will always be unified, standardized, and up-to-date.
Here's who uses Venice:
- Startups use Venice to collect customer-permissioned data to make informed decisions faster on underwriting & credit worthiness, aggregate financial data, and automate accounting for your customers.
- Developers use Venice to avoid recreating the wheel by building all your own financial data infrastructure. Easily add new integrations in a weekend, not months, so you can ship faster.
- Data analysts use Venice to consolidate revenue & reporting into a unified database, while easily piping it out to dashboards.
- Personal finance geeks use Venice to keep your spreadsheets up-to-date, build more wealth, and retire faster.
And what they're building:
- Customer-permissioned data integrations (e.g. collect accounting info)
- Credit risk / underwriting tools
- Personal finance apps (build your own Mint.com in a weekend!)
- Internal team dashboards using Mode or Redash
- Internal apps using no-code platforms like Retool or Bubble
- Financial reports using custom Python scripts
- Internal team expense & forecasting apps
Who is Venice for?
You, probably. Venice supports a large variety of use cases, whether you're a developer, data analyst, no-code dev, finance geek, data scientist, accountant, small business owner, etc... we're here to help you get your data from A to B in a simple, unified way.
Venice already supports thousands of financial institutions (banks, investment accounts, etc.) out-of-the-box, but our platform's flexibility doesn't end there.
Venice can help build custom integrations to pipe data into Venice from a financial data source of your choosing. This allows you to easily integrate your existing data source needs with Venice and make use of Venice's unified and standardized data engineering & infrastructure to do all the heavy lifting.
Your can request custom integration pipelines by contacting Venice's support team and providing information about the data source you want access to. Venice's team will then work with you to build a custom integration pipeline to suit your needs.
Custom integration pipelines can be set up for specific data sources such as accounting software, banking data, or payment gateways, and can be scheduled to run at specific intervals, such as daily, weekly, or monthly.
We're on your team, so you can relax and do what you love best while we handle all the hard stuff.
- Importing from accounting software (Quickbooks, Xero, etc)
- Exporting to your own database
- Importing from payments providers (Stripe, Paypal, etc.)
- Importing from commerce software (Shopify)
Looking for self-hosting?
As an open source infrastructure platform, Venice works just as great in enterprise environments as it does for startups building from day 1. Reach out and let's work together on getting you launched faster!

What licence is Venice released under?
We have two licenses:
Connectors / integrations are licensed under MIT, which is one of the most permissive open source licenses possible. We welcome you to fork our connectors to improve them, build new ones, and give back to yourself & others building on top of Venice.
ELv2 is a simple, non-copyleft license, allowing you to “use, copy, distribute, make available, and prepare derivative works of the software”.
Anyone can self-host Venice free of charge for now.
The only limitations are, you cannot:
- Provide Venice directly to others as a managed service (but you can sell access to applications built on top of Venice)
- Circumvent any license key functionality or remove/obscure features protected by license keys; or
- Remove or obscure any licensing, copyright, or other notices
If you'd like to remove these limitations to use Venice, we offer alternative licenses for maintenance, support, and other commercial terms. Please contact us for more information.
