Upstart powered lenders

We help our bank and credit union partners grow their consumer lending portfolios and offer an exceptional digital lending experience.
“Many Fintech companies aspire to become the bank of the future — we’re not one of them. Instead of competing with banks, we partner with them and use AI to create modern all-digital lending experiences.”

“We talked to one fintech company and we didn’t like their model and approach. They immediately told us we could considerably mark up rates and make money. As a credit union, that’s not our philosophy, and it didn’t sit well with us. Our goal is to lend responsibly to help our members fulfill their goals … We wanted a partner who lends to the right people, even though those people may have blemishes on their credit history. We want to make an impact on their lives.”
