We are growing rapidly because we provide high-quality, affordable options for people who feel shut out by big banks on one end and exploited by check cashers on the other
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
Plastyc, provider of the UPside and iBankUP money management services, is among the top 50 fastest growing private companies in New York City with three-year revenue growth of 655 percent according to the 2012 Inc. 500/5000 list of America's fastest growing companies.
Plastyc provides FDIC-insured online and mobile banking accounts for young and underbanked customers. The company debuted on the list in 33rd for financial services companies, 45 for New York City companies and 564th overall.
"We are growing rapidly because we provide high-quality, affordable options for people who feel shut out by big banks on one end and exploited by check cashers on the other," said Plastyc CEO Patrice Peyret. "Clearly, more and more people feel that way."
