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!

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.

Great Traders Pay It Forward

As you probably know, Vantagepoint is dedicated to doing well and doing good. We’ve been donating a portion of our revenue every week to Shriners Hospitals for Children.  Because of our growth as a company and because our family of traders like you has been growing too, we’ve been able to increase our philanthropic efforts!

We’ve added a new partner, the Children’s Cancer Center, to our charitable giving.  And this month, I’m honored to let you know that they have chosen Vantagepoint AI as their Partner of the Month for February – now that’s quite a valentine!

You may or may not know, I’m a cancer survivor myself.  

Knowing firsthand about cancer, I’m especially thoughtful of what it’s like for kids and their families.  And that’s what lead me to the Children’s Cancer Center. 

The Children’s Cancer Center is the only program like it in the country and they serve about 1,000 families on an on-going basis. The organization recognizes that when a child is diagnosed with cancer or a chronic blood disorder, the entire family is actually diagnosed.  This amazing organization steps up and immediately begins to help the entire family with emotional, financial, and educational support.

Here’s a quick video about our partnership with The Children’s Cancer Center:

I am thrilled that we as a company are working to support this amazing team not only with financial donations but also as part of our family. We will be involving Children’s Cancer Center families in our own fun activities when it works for them. We truly consider them part of our family. Already Trinity and her family have been part of one of our events.

As a representative of our family of traders and all of our team here in our offices, I am honored we have been selected by the Children’s Cancer Center as their Partner of the Month. If you’re a Vantagepoint Trader, thank you for helping us to make this special relationship possible; I appreciate your trust to do what’s right.
If you haven’t joined our family yet, I hope you’ll consider doing so; we can do even more to help children and their families as they walk through cancer – no matter their ability to pay for services. Together we can use our power for good!

When You Do What You Love, It’s Not Work!

I’m so excited — Vantagepoint AI, LLC (www.vantagepointsoftware.com) has been selected for the tenth time as one of the Best Places To Work in Tampa Bay by the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
When you consider that my dad started this as a small, home-based business over 40 years ago, it’s astounding to stand back and see that Vantagepoint has grown into a world leader providing artificial intelligence software to independent traders. What makes me even happier is that Vantagepoint has created a family of tens of thousands of traders in over 120 countries around the globe, and our internal family continues to grow right along with it.
In case you haven’t heard, my father, Louis Mendelsohn, was the first person to make strategy back-testing commercially available for independent traders back in 1979. We continue to carry on his work by staying on the cutting-edge with both our product line and our workplace culture. Early on, my father established our ethos with a high level of caring for our customers while also being fiercely dedicated to our team. As I continue to lead the company, I’m committed to our culture and continuing to be part of what makes Tampa a great place to live and work.
Vantagepoint 10 x Winner for Best Places to Work


I am thrilled to be recognized by our team as a place that cares about them and I will always work to create an atmosphere for all of us that brings joy, excited, purpose, passion, and fun to our workplace.

Along with this award, Vantagepoint has also been recognized by the Business Journal for our philanthropic work. We were awarded the ONE Tampa Bay Award by the Business Journal.

Vantagepoint regularly donates a portion of its revenue to Shriners Hospitals for Children and The Children’s Cancer Center along with donating goods, man/woman power, and monies to a wide variety of local charities. To date, with your help, we have donated more than $670,000 to local non-profits.

Both the ONE and Best Place to Work awards speak to the foundation of our culture; as a company we all work to provide a five-star experience for our family of traders and our internal team, we are also committed to sharing our success and joy forward with the community.

I feel that the Tampa Bay area has been the perfect place for our company to put down roots and build our family. Today my girls, Rachael and Abby, are learning the fundamentals of our business and the values that are essential to our success. I know in the years to come we will continue to be an integral part of the Tampa Bay business community and a great place to work for generations to come.


While Artificial Intelligence is a relatively new concept for most independent traders, 40 years on we continue to be at the forefront of using it to empower people around the world and level the playing field for trading in the financial markets.

As a company, we are committed to sustainable growth while constantly evolving our software to provide a reliable yet vital service to traders.
