Upstart is an online peer-to-peer lending platform founded by ex-Google employees in April 2012, headquartered in Palo Alto, California, United States.
Upstart provides access to fixed rate personal loans with a new approach, the past traditional underwriting models which focused on credit scores and debt to income ratio to determine the creditworthiness of an applicant, are substituted with new innovative methods. Instead of focusing solely on credit history and scores, they even look at nontraditional factors, like educational background, grades, and earning potential to estimate creditworthiness.
Upstart has a solid backing from firms like Google Ventures, KPCB, Khosla Ventures, Founders Fund, First Round Capital, Eric Schmidt, and Mark Cuban.
