We categorise and label bank transaction data
We analyse bank transaction data to help other FinTechs make sense of their customers’ data, starting with making it easier for them to give loans to small-to-medium businesses. This helps to solve the credit crunch in Small Business Lending, a $65B industry in the US alone.
We’re an experienced team with background at top tech and finance companies like Facebook, Revolut and Spotify.
We’re multi-cultural and welcome diversity. Each of our team members was born on a different continent. We make sure everyone feels included in our company events and accomodate all cultural and dietary requirements.
We graduated from Y Combinator in 2020 and raised a $1.25M seed round. In 2021, we grew from $20k to $500k in Annual Recurring Revenue.
