Nova Credit Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the U.S.

Nova Credit was named to Inc. Magazine's prestigious list of the top 5000 fastest-growing, privately-owned companies in the U.S. This is Nova Credit’s debut on the annual list, and the company ranked #521 overall.

The Inc. 5000 program is a celebration of innovation. The list ranks companies by overall revenue growth over a three-year period by industry, metro area, revenue, and number of employees. Nova Credit ranked #81 in the state of California and #22 for privately-owned companies in San Francisco, one of the leading hubs of innovation in the world. 

Nova Credit began its journey in 2016 to address various obstacles within the financial services industry from a systemic level by developing the Credit Passport®, which can translate newcomers’ international credit history to a U.S.-equivalent score. Through partnerships with international credit bureaus in almost every major market, Nova Credit has emerged as one of the most exciting fintech startups with tremendous social impact, having built partnerships in more than 20 countries to gain consumer-permissioned access to over two billion credit profiles.

Through its solutions and partnerships, Nova Credit is shattering the barriers of today’s financial services industry and challenging the way we think about credit. Today, Nova Credit has expanded its solutions beyond just newcomers to the U.S. by introducing Cash Atlas™, which works to serve all individuals who feel discouraged by the current financial system. In addition to the milestone launch of Cash Atlas™, Nova Credit has seen momentous growth this past year sparked by:

  • New partnerships with companies such as Verizon, Alloy, SafeRent Solutions, and Prodigy Finance to provide an inclusive financial experience to more individuals across different lending verticals

  • Expansion into the European market, starting with a focus on the UK to unlock new audiences for UK lenders and financial services businesses

  • Additions to its leadership team with the appointment of Patrick Cadic as Chief Revenue Officer, Collin Galster as Vice President of International, Yacine Azmi as Head of Engineering, and Pablo Cerrilla as VP of Marketing

“It’s an honor to be among this group of outstanding companies that are shaping the future of their respective industries.,” said Tuvia Peretz, General Counsel and Acting Head of People at Nova Credit. "The Inc. 5000 recognition is a testament to Nova Credit’s evolution since launching just six years ago and this is only the beginning of our journey, and our team’s passion continues to grow as we work to build a world without financial borders.”

Winners will be honored at the Inc. 5000 Conference & Gala on October 19-21 in Phoenix. The full 2022 list and more information on this event can be found here.
