Upstart

Founded by ex-Googlers, Upstart is an online lending platform that goes beyond the FICO score to finance people based on signals of their potential, including schools attended, area of study, academic performance, and work history. Their proprietary underwriting model identifies high-quality borrowers despite limited credit and employment experience.

    "We've found that FICO is not actually as predictive as most people think. There are people with FICOs in the 800s who will default...and there are people with FICOs in the 500s who are actually very creditworthy." @davegirouard talking to @GoLendEDU bit.ly/2HnVUQI
