Celebrating Dan Holt and Kelly Seidl, Recipients of the Governor’s Citizenship Medal
DENVER, Colo., Apr 7th, 2022 — Last night, Endeavor Colorado was thrilled to celebrate Endeavor Entrepreneurs Dan Holt and Kelly Seidl of BillGO as they received the Governor’s Medal in Growth and Innovation. Presented by Endeavor Colorado Chairman Dan Caruso, this award recognizes Dan and Kelly’s exceptional leadership and advancement of Colorado through ingenuity and innovation.
“If you look at financial access, it all starts with managing and paying bills,” said Co-founder and CEO Dan Holt. “We knew that if we did this, and we did it right, we would impact the lives of millions and millions of Americans.” Driven by the core belief that everyone deserves access to a healthy financial future, BillGO is giving people a faster, smarter, more secure way to pay bills and manage subscriptions. BillGO’s technology provides simple integration into any existing system that gives payment providers access to a proven, real-time, and more secure bill payments engine.
Since BillGO’s founding, Dan and Kelly have believed “if you take care of the people here then they will take care of our customers.” Taking that belief one step further, Dan and Kelly helped to take care of their community as well, launching the BillGO Relief Hub to connect banks and billers to people who needed financial support during the pandemic. “People that were struggling could put in applications to receive help. BillGO and employees actually helped to give people relief when they were struggling,” said Dan.
As Endeavor Entrepreneurs, Dan and Kelly have given back to the next generation of Colorado founders through mentorship, and continue to build inspiring and innovative solutions at BillGO. “Colorado is proud to be home to BillGO and founders Dan Holt and Kelly Seidl,” said Governor Polis. “Through their work, these leaders are helping shepherd the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs.”
Harnessing the power of speed, choice, and intelligence, BillGO is reimagining bill pay. Driven by the core belief that everyone deserves access to a healthy financial future, we give people a faster, smarter, more secure way to pay bills and manage subscriptions. Our award-winning bill pay platform was innovated in response to the demands of today’s digital lifestyle — a game-changer for banks, billers, and consumers. Visit BillGO.com to learn more.
