A Miami-headquartered fintech company has opened a Wilmington office.
Novo, a two-time member of the Forbes Fintech 50, has built a platform for small businesses that combines a checking account with an ecosystem of financial applications.
It’s designed to help small businesses access their revenue faster, save time on business-critical tasks and manage their money any time on any device.
Novo’s decision to choose Delaware for its expansion further confirms the state’s status as a hub for financial services and fintech companies, says a press release from the Delaware Prosperity Partnership.

Wilmington continues to be the site of significant growth for existing businesses in the financial services and fintech sector while also attracting new firms to the area.
Companies with recent Delaware expansions include Ally Financial, City National Bank, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase.
“Small businesses make up more than half of Delaware’s workforce — an incredible testament to the work Delaware has done to make small business creation and growth as accessible as possible,” said Grant Sahag, vice presdient of operations at Novo. “The Novo team is honored to be a part of Delaware’s thriving small business community.”
Since launching in 2018, Novo has surpassed $20 billion in small business transactions and was named to the Forbes Fintech 50 list, which highlights “the top private companies that are transforming finance through technology,” in both 2022 and 2023.
Novo’s new product
In Delaware, Novo is operating from the Stat International space on Orange Street. Novo has hired a dozen employees since May and will continue to grow the office in the coming years.
One of Novo’s recently developed offerings is Novo Funding, a fast and flexible way for small businesses to access working capital. Since its launch, Novo Funding has issued more than $70 million in working capital.
“Novo’s decision to expand to Wilmington is great news for the First State,” said Gov. John Carney. “We want to be the place companies consider when starting and growing their businesses. Novo’s move to Wilmington shows that our efforts to make Delaware inviting to corporations are working and that the Delaware Prosperity Partnership is making a difference.”
