For years now, our mission has been to help people build credit while saving some money. With nearly 100 million Americans with a 600 credit score below 600, or who are unscoreable*, providing and improving tools that provide access to credit for everyone is more important now than ever.

To further this mission, we are proud to announce we just raised a $20 million round of Series C financing, co-led by Altos Ventures and Conductive Ventures, with additional investment from Silverton Partners and other ongoing investors.

With this funding, we can invest in the hiring, product development and marketing to help improve the overall success of our customers.

We want to help you achieve your financial goals. We're thrilled with the investment from Conductive Ventures, and the continued support from Altos Ventures and other investors. With their support, we hope to impact hundreds of thousands more customers on your journey to financial wellness and stability.

Thanks for joining us along the way.
