Tyler Griffin has spent the last 12 years thinking about how to make money work better. In 2012, Tyler cofounded Prism Money, a consumer-focused bill payment product that allowed for instant and free payments to over 15,000 banks and billers. When he later sold Prism to PayNearMe (now Handle Financial), Prism was processing approximately $15mm in consumer payments monthly. Prism is now America’s largest real-time payment network.
Following Prism's sale, Tyler became entrepreneur-in-residence for the Financial Solutions Lab, a partnership between JPMorgan Chase and CFSI. In this role, he mentored 16 Lab companies focused on fintech solutions to improve financial health.
Prior to starting Prism, Tyler worked in the Mergers & Acquisitions group at JPMorgan’s and Citigroup’s Investment Banking offices in New York City. He also worked at a middle-market private equity fund and served on multiple boards of directors. Tyler graduated from Northwestern University in 2005 and holds a commercial pilot certificate.
He co-founded Financial Venture Studio in early 2018 along with Ryan Falvey and is currently a Managing Partner there.
