Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas — Gestalt is pleased to bring decades of experience in lending and fintech together to create an out-of-the box data warehouse that makes pulling and analyzing data dramatically easier, faster, and more affordable for any sized lender, especially startups and community lenders.

Gestalt is led by CEO Stephanie Hanson, founder of defi SOLUTIONS, in partnership with Ensemblex venture studio Director Chloe Zhu and Principal Shawn Budde. The leadership team is rounded out by CTO/CPO Justin McClintick.

“When Shawn and Chloe approached me with this great data warehouse solution, I loved it! Lenders spend too much of their time and resources wrangling data from all their different systems, when they should be making decisions from clean data and servicing customers. Gestalt changes all that,” Hanson said.

Data warehouses have historically been the domain of large, established lenders with budgets and staff to build their own or hire an expensive contractor to build it for them. And even then, it’s painful and time consuming.

With Gestalt, even small lenders starting out can have a data warehouse that delivers decision-ready data and automatically surfaces key insights, empowering them to focus on what matters most to their business. “Lenders know they need a data warehouse and typically push it down the road. But in reality, it never gets done or done well. Now we can do it for them in as few as 30 days and at a 300% better value,” Hanson said.

Budde said Gestalt has ignited the AWS moment in financial data warehousing. “We at Ensemblex are excited to partner with Stephanie and Justin to offer this groundbreaking solution. As Gestalt frees lenders from wrangling messy data, lenders and their partners can move faster and with more confidence.”
