Neil Kadagathur and Aravind Chandrasekaran founded Creditspring in 2016, leaving the world of corporate finance behind in the search for something more. They saw that millions of people in the UK were being punished by unsafe, expensive and complicated credit, so they set to do something about it.
Neil spent 12 years at Goldman Sachs after studying at Princeton, and Aravind worked for a number of banks and hedge funds for 10 years after leaving Oxford. During their careers, they noticed that consumer credit wasn’t seeing anywhere near as much innovation as the rest of the financial industry, and ordinary people were being left behind.
So, they decided to use their experience to change that. Creditspring was born as a way to improve peoples’ lives through better access to finance, starting with reimagining the way people borrow.
