September 23, 2022 – Palo Alto, CA – Trust Science earned a top-20 spot on the 430-company list of Top Growing Companies by The Globe and Mail, Canada’s equivalent of the Wall Street Journal. The award recognizes companies with over $2M in annual sales and three-year revenue growth over 50%: Trust Science easily exceeded the contest’s hurdles with a three-year growth rate over 2,100%.
Driven by Explainable AI (“xAI”) and statistical learning technology, Credit Bureau+ is capable of actually exploiting today’s volatility to produce highly accurate and FCRA-compliant scores despite gyrating economic conditions. Critically, Trust Science provides its lender customers with an accurate assessment of historically underserved populations – what Trust Science calls Invisible Primes.
“More and more lenders, through COVID and all of the recent market uncertainty, are realizing that conventional ‘borrower assessment’ doesn’t work for a massive tranche of consumers,” says Trust Science Founder, Chairman, and CEO, Evan Chrapko. “With over 40% of conventional scores under 700 being inaccurate, lenders are looking for ways to automate their operations & also get more accurate lead screening and application adjudication – solving this economy-wide issue has spurred our growth”.
As Trust Science continues its rapid ascent as one of Canada’s Top Growing Companies – aiming to enjoy that same moniker for the whole of North America – it will continue to focus on helping lenders find better marketing leads and make better-informed loans. Not only does this allow lenders to safely serve consumers during ever-increasing volatility, but it also creates avenues for financial inclusivity and an on-ramp for previously marginalized people into the modern economy – a key aspect of the Trust Science mission.
“Time, money and ingenuity have been our ingredients, and financial inclusion for deserving-but-overlooked borrowers has been our achievement,” adds Chrapko. “Our platform has scored millions of files and we aim to score tens of millions in the not-too-distant future. My team of geniuses and our advanced customers are making a positive social impact, especially for Invisible Primes – people such as youth, BIPOC, immigrants, and other marginalized demographics.”
Years of R&D, holding to a vision, and in-market execution went into becoming a Top Growing Company. Now, lenders can make more accurate, FCRA-compliant decisions throughout the entire life cycle of a borrower. Trust Science’s proprietary FinTech SaaS that predicts consumers’ borrowing behavior injects value anywhere in a lender’s business, from lead sourcing and screening to loan decisioning, identity and fraud protection, and even securitization negotiations.
“Trust Science is one of the first to master Explainable AI and statistical learning for commercial use cases,” added Chrapko, who comes from a background as a serial technology entrepreneur specializing in industry disruption and has delivered over $1/2B in shareholder gains. “Combining this with our battle-hardened security and our decisioning logic unlocks so many more capabilities that we can deliver to our customers – capabilities that would make the conventional industry giants’ heads spin.”
Trust Science has built a cloud-native, mobile-native platform from the ground up. This is a departure from some dominant, multi-Billion dollar, global players that are trying to either update or flee their old, existing mainframe-style infrastructure and older methods of computer modeling, and some of whom are siloed country-by-country. Trust Science’s global architecture and its cutting edge technology has been protected with 50 patents granted from 13 different countries, and it still has many more patents pending.
As a bootstrapped company without any institutional investors, Chrapko has self-funded to date, along with supportive, high-caliber individual investors like the recent investment made by Seattle’s so-called Unicorn Whisperer. With relentless global volatility and as more and more lenders come to realize conventional credit marketing & assessment methods have been eclipsed, Trust Science’s growth is just beginning.
“Extreme growth is extremely expensive. As we head toward cash-flow break-even, now is the time to engage with growth-minded, permanent and/or strategic institutional investors who can write 8-figure checks and add tangible non-monetary value,” says Chrapko. “Our mission is to help deserving people get the loans they deserve, and there are billions of them in the world, in dire straits, because lenders haven’t had a proper scoring/decisioning system until now.”
