Even With All The Uncertainty, We Emerged With a Year of Excellence

I just received notification that Vantagepoint AI has been recognized by Corporate Vision as the Most Innovative AI-Driven Trading Technology Firm in the U.S. That pretty much summed up the year for me! Despite all the uncertainty, I’m so proud how our company has excelled throughout what could have been an extremely challenging year.

  • We’ve been recognized as a top company by FORTUNE magazine, Florida Trend, the Business Observer and Inc. 5000.
  • We were named a Most Innovative company by Corporate Vision, CIO Views, and Acquisitions International.
  • VantagePoint software was named the Best AI Trading Software by the Worldwide Finance Awards and the Most Powerful AI Trading Software by A.I. International.
  • Our workplace culture was acknowledged by Great Place to Work, the Tampa Bay Business Journal, the Tampa Bay Times.
  • Our company’s growth has been recognized by Inc. Magazine and Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Fast 50.
  • And — we were able to increase our donations to Shriners Hospitals for Children and The Children’s Cancer Center.

 

Vantagepoint receives recognition in 2020

It’s wonderful to be recognized by so many organizations for the hard work my team does and our dedication to our core values.

But, this is the feedback that carries the most weight for us:

  • “I have been a VP customer for 7 years now. From the very beginning the customer support and coaching team have been top notch. You have been very proactive in reaching out to me to ensure I continue to be successful. When I have a question, I always receive a timely and high quality answer. Great product and great people.” – Steve F.
  • “Your software really gives me an expansive view of the flow of the markets. My trading and bottom line have improved with the help of Vantagepoint. The customer service is tops, your staff go out of their way to help.”  – William M.
  • “You have an amazing group of people providing cutting edge software products to traders across the globe. No other product even comes close to what you provide. I tell other people, if they’re looking for an edge in the markets you can provide it!”  – Eric
  • “I know I’ve got the best tools now to help me succeed…and that’s exciting!  The more I learn the software and what it does and how it helps me, the happier I am that I’m part of the Vantagepoint Family.”  – Brian G.
  • “Thanks again for all you do!  Vantage Point Software has been a real shot in the arm!“ – Robert M.

Every bit of feedback we get from traders is invaluable to us; seeing our “family” succeed is the best award we could ask for.

As we close out the year, we hope you find many silver linings too.

National Philanthropy Day Brings Extra Donations From Vantagepoint AI

Over the years, we’ve been proud to support Shriners Hospitals for Children; and we’ve built strong bonds with our patient ambassadors.  We believe in giving more than just money. We put our heart into our relationship with Shriners. My daughters, Rachael and Abigail, have developed some special friendships, and my entire team cherishes their own personal connections that have developed with these amazing kids.

This year, as our Vantagepoint Family increased in size, expanded our corporate giving to include The Children’s Cancer Center. Talk about a group of strong and wonderful children! Even throughout the pandemic, we have been able to donate to both organizations regularly and equally.

This year, I wanted to surprise my team with something special in honor of National Philanthropy Day.  I set some lofty goals for the team for the 4th quarter and they proceeded to achieve them.  On Wednesday I announced that due to their added efforts, we would not only be making our regular donations to both organizations, but that we would be making an additional donation for the month to each.

When I let our partners and ambassadors know what was coming, they wanted to join in with me in a message for our Vantagepoint family, and share with all of us how much it means to them to have our ongoing support, especially when so many other companies have had to pull back.

It’s an amazing feeling to make a difference in someone’s life.  I hope you enjoy sharing it with us.

Vantagepoint AI is an Inc. 5000 company

Vantagepoint AI Is On The Inc. 5000 List

We have been notified that Vantagepoint AI has been included in the Inc. 5000 list!

Inc. magazine analyzes company data to recognize the fastest-growing privately held businesses in the United States.

Vantagepoint AI is an Inc. 5000 company
You may not know this, but Vantagepoint AI was the first company in the world to give independent traders the power of artificial intelligence for their home computers.  My father’s work essentially created the FinTech industry for independent traders and we’ve been empowering traders for over 40 years since. 

In his letter to me about joining the list, Inc.’s Editor-In-Chief, Scott Omelianuk said, “Our annual Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.”

It’s such an honor to be part of an elite group of companies that has included titans like Microsoft, Timberland, Intuit, Oracle, and Patagonia.

Equally gratifying is leading a team that has produced almost 60% growth for our company.  My entire team’s dedication to our core values and using those as our touchstone for how we do business has ensured that we grow without losing the personal touch and integrity for which Vantagepoint is highly regarded.

I hope you’ll join me in celebrating this very meaningful milestone in our company’s history and our journey into the future.

Many companies struggled with the COVID shut down and they have endured great difficulty trying to deploy their teams remotely to continue day-to-day business operations.  I am so proud of my team – our transition was exceptionally smooth.

As a team, we are able to be agile, responsive, and unwavering as we create seamless continuity for our customers and for those searching for a way to trade smarter in these unpredictable markets.  We’ve welcomed more new traders to our Vantagepoint family than in the history of the company over 40 years.

Nationally Certified, We Truly Are A Great Place to Work

I’m very happy to share some good news with you — we’ve been nationally certified again by Great Place to Work, the leading authority in the world on workplace culture!
 
Our team continues to grow but we are committed to growing without losing sight of our core values. In fact, we even have a team member on staff dedicated to supporting our culture and our core values.
Vantagepoint AI is Great Place to Work Certified
We place a high value on our culture; we recognize that it’s vital to our success. We care deeply about our team – their health, their passion for what we do, and for their families too. We also strive to create a positive, upbeat atmosphere where people can feel innovative, valued, and respected.
 
It means so much to me that our team, when they were surveyed, reported to the third-party agency that they are exceedingly happy here at Vantagepoint.
 
I’m heartened to know that my team trusts me to lead them, especially through these turbulent times. Research shows when a team has a deep level of trust, they are more productive, drive better business results, and make a difference to customers – for us it’s far more than that.
 
As word gets out, more and more institutions are recognizing our unique team and the service we provide to traders. It’s a huge honor to be recognized at the national level and we will continue to be a force and an example of an inclusionary workplace culture.
Tampa Bay Times names Vantagepoint a Top Work Place and Top 3 Small Business Workplaces

Vantagepoint AI Recognized as a Top Workplace and Top 3 Small Business Workplace by the Tampa Bay Times

I was thrilled when we were selected as one of the Top Workplaces by the Tampa Bay Times earlier this year. We strive to create a culture of respect, integrity, passion, and fun. 

Recently we were notified that not only are we a TOP Workplace but that we were named one of the Top 3 Small Business Workplaces. That was exciting!
Vantagepoint selected as top 3 small business workplaces

So many companies are moving their headquarters into the beautiful Tampa Bay area. It’s why being selected as one of the top 3 workplace cultures in Tampa by the highly respected Tampa Bay Times is so meaningful to me.

We have always worked to treat our team just as we would our family (complete with fun, in-office “sibling” rivalries), we value the people that work for us, we respect them, and we want to create a balanced work-life experience for everyone. It’s important to me that I know every name, face, and family that works for Vantagepoint.

I’m grateful that as our company has “grown-up”, we are recognized as being a great place to work. But what means even more to me is that with so many well-known names and top-notch companies, my team has chosen us and are part of creating something very special.

Lane Mendelsohn, President of Vantagepoint AI, named Leader of the Year.

Great Place to Work and Fortune Magazine Name Lane Mendelsohn a National Leader

Just before CoVID-19 reared it’s head here in the US, I was notified that had been nationally recognized by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work.  Previously Vantagepoint was singled out as one of the top 50 small businesses in the United States for its workplace culture by Great Place to Work and Fortune.  Being recognized as the leader of a great company was really thrilling and humbling!

Beyond offering a superior product, we’ve created an award-winning workplace culture dedicated to the development of every employee, connecting diverse people to a common purpose, practicing humility and empathy, adapting to uncertainty, and fostering trusting relationships.

This is an unprecedented time in history!  It’s difficult to find things to celebrate right now.   I take my role very seriously – not only for our team but for our entire Vantagepoint family. 

But, in the midst of it all, we’ve been noticed for our culture built on innovation, teamwork, communication, positivity, passion, purpose, respect, and integrity. Those values guide our every decision and are my touchstone as a leader.

At the gala presentation in San Francisco, Great Place to Work CEO Michael C. Bush said, “The financial performance of these organizations and the industry leading commitment to corporate responsibility provide strong evidence that when you create a great place to work for all, it is better for business, better for people, and better for the world.”   I couldn’t agree more! We are an integral part of the health and vibrance of our community with our commercial and philanthropic work; and we provide education, and white-glove service to our traders in over 120 countries.  In times of uncertainity, we can be a force for good and empower traders to protect themselves in the highly volatile markets.

My goal is to provide a voice of surety and consistency for my team and our entire family of traders. I’m thankful that our software gives traders foresight and the ability to plan for change. While we are watching thousands of traders lose decades of hard-earned capital, our traders are able to mitigate their losses and even profit amidst this historic volatility. 

I’m proud to say that my entire team is here to support and empower our Vantagepoint traders.

Lane Mendelsohn, President of Vantagepoint, named Top 10 Most Innovative leaders

Top 10 Most Innovative Global AI Executive!

Recently I was recognized by Insight Analytics as one of the Most Innovative Global A.I. Executives.  It’s a huge honor to be recognized on the global stage for our company’s culture, core values, and ethics.

I really enjoyed my interview with Insight Analytics’ editors; it gave me the opportunity to stop and reflect on what makes us a leader in the world with our artificial intelligence.  We believe in empowering traders – but the secret is in the how

Lane Mendelsohn Named Most Innovative Global AI Exec

We’ve been at the forefront of artificial intelligence as a service to customers for over 40 years, I often say we were “fintech” before fintech even existed.  But we’ve always recognized where the source of our success lies – it’s in our traders’ success, it’s in changing people’s lives, and helping our traders to have all the tools we can supply them with to trade smarter and profit more.

This interview also reminded me that when we’re profitable and find financial freedom, it means we can do more…more for our families, more for others around us, and more for the world.  Our trading success gives us the freedom and power to do good. 

So many of our Vantagepoint Family Members are doing generous, thoughtful, amazing things!  Some of them are putting young people unrelated to them through college, others are using their trading to support themselves as they give everything to running care homes for the differently abled, and others have designated charities to be the beneficiaries of their success in their wills. Our traders inspire us!

And, it’s our traders that drive us to continue to innovate and disrupt the trading industry. My dad literally created the home trading software industry with his first software release; and I’ve been able to take our company in directions my father could never have imagined. 

It’s always gratifying to be recognized by one’s peers, but I feel this honor is bigger than me.  It’s about our team, it’s about our purpose, and it’s about you.
