Business Development
Nova Credit is a fintech company that enables immigrants to access capital and realize their potential. Nova Credit emerged from a Stanford University research project and is now the world’s premier cross-border credit bureau. Our API enables lenders to access a single, predictive cross-border credit database to help  underwrite immigrants and other global citizens.  In effect, we are the first and only platform that allows for financial identity to move around the world.

Nova Credit was founded by a team of socially-driven entrepreneurs out of Stanford.  We are graduates of Y Combinator, a 2017 LendIt Winner, and JP Morgan: Center for Financial Services Innovation Winner. We’re backed by an incredible group of investors including First Round Capital, Index Ventures, NYCA, Core Innovation Capital, and various founders and thought leaders in fintech and financial services.

We’re passionate about financial inclusion and committed to building a diverse, and fulfilling work culture.
