Trust Science® delivers its Credit Bureau 2.0® SaaS to lenders. This award-winning FinTech uncovers Invisible Prime™ and Hidden Prime™ borrowers for banks, credit unions and consumer finance companies. Its mission is To Allow Deserving People to Get What They Deserve. Superior decisions (which the F.I. industry calls “lift”) go straight to the lender’s bottom line, delivering risk-adjusted ROIs of up to 200x and material increases to ROA, ROC (Finance), AUC, KS & Gini (Statistics). In addition to de-risking lenders’ ability to give loans to deserving applicants who are wrongly scored by conventional means, Trust Science also brings a risk lens to the Marketing function (pre-qualifying, pre-screening, and direct mail.) Financial Inclusion and economic mobility is delivered to consumers by accurately assessing systemically excluded, thin file, and so-called ‘no hit’ loan applicants. Previously marginalized people now have an onramp into the modern economy, which is a multi-Trillion-dollar global opportunity, if they are approaching a lender that uses Credit Bureau 2.0. Gartner® has cited Trust Science contributions re: Explainable AI (“xAI”) research and Trust Science also prioritizes compliance with consumer protection and privacy laws like FCRA, ECOA, PIPEDA & CCPA. Importantly in these volatile and privacy-challenged times, this platform has productionized Statistical Learning and it also has direct-to-consumer Smart Consent™ technology for gathering consented/permissioned data from loan applicants. The technology and methods harnessed to make this possible are now protected by 44 patents (2 of which have been successfully used in an offensive capacity in the U.S.) and trademarks granted across 19 different countries, with another 38 patents still pending. The company is led by a serial technology commercialization entrepreneur who has delivered over $1/2 Billion of gains to shareholders in his career, and who was recently added to a list of the Top 50 CEOs in A.I. The company was recently included in the Global Impact 200 alongside 17 other ESG-forward technology companies like Microsoft and Tesla. Trust Science is preparing to raise funds at the Series B level into one of the business world’s most simple cap tables.
