We sat down with several members of Financial Solutions Lab’s 2017 class of startups last June in Austin, Texas, and asked them about what they were doing and how they hoped to create change in financial services. First up is Financial Solutions Lab company Nova.
Lack of a U.S. credit history keeps millions of immigrants in the United States from realizing their dreams. The Nova team hails from all over the world, and experienced firsthand the challenge of not having a credit history, which can prevent access to housing, auto loans, and even a credit card. Nova provides a solution that enables immigrants to share their credit history from their home country with financial service providers and others, unlocking new consumers for lenders, and new features for immigrants.
