About QuantConnect

Democratizing Finance, Empowering Individuals


We believe in empowering people and revolutionizing the financial industry with concepts of radical openness, collaboration and the power of a community of brilliant people. We do this by sharing beautiful open-source engineering with an organic community of quantitative finance professionals from around the world. We provide a place where people can be challenged, gain recognition and profit for their efforts and connect with others interested in the same topics.


We believe brilliant minds aren’t always in New York; statistically rarely go to Harvard and often seek opportunities that are, first and foremost, fulfilling. We nurture a global community of quantitative engineers to build algorithms and contribute to the LEAN code base. The community shapes the technology design and helps bring the project to fruition in our open-source, decentralized, hybrid-cloud environment.

QuantConnect will anchor this global community; educating, concentrating and distilling the brightest minds to become a global factory of alpha. Funds will compete for the brightest minds in a lightning speed Darwin evolution to find and fund strategies through an API; giving individuals income from their work at scale.


We believe fund management professionals will seek powerful new technology to design investments and manage their positions. Driven by investor and regulatory pressures funds will demand efficiency, automation and accountability. Rather than reinvent complex technology, we envisage QuantConnect powering these investments with our open-source platform LEAN; empowering financial technology companies, investment funds and brokerage trading platforms. The LEAN API will become a ubiquitous element at the core of the financial industry, providing a common foundation for efficient algorithm design.
