At Nova Credit, our mission is to power a more fair and inclusive financial system for the world. Our diverse global team is stitching together the world's credit data into a single network to unlock financial opportunities for new-to-country, new-to-credit, and other populations that have been historically marginalized in the credit system. We've developed the world's foremost expertise in credit data connectivity, standardization, analytics, and compliance required to unlock the power of open finance to benefit a broader base of consumers and lenders. We serve some of the world's preeminent firms, including AmEx, HSBC, Scotiabank, SoFi, and Verizon, and our mission is backed by leading investors, such as Canapi, General Catalyst, Index Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, and Y Combinator.
