Fair and transparent credit
We're on a mission to make it available to all.
Dedicated to building a more equitable financial system
We believe technology can enable lenders to make better lending decisions with a fairer, more accurate picture of every borrower—increasing inclusion and reducing inequity.
We’re a diverse team of high horsepower people coming together to deliver bold, smart, and innovative AI solutions for highly regulated industries—but we’re a bit quirky too, never quite satisfied with the status quo.
We think a little Zest makes a big difference.
