Neil Kadagathur and Aravind Chandrasekaran founded Creditspring in 2016, leaving the world of corporate finance behind in the search for something more. Having studied at Princeton and Oxford respectively, with Neil at Goldman Sachs for 12 years and Aravind in the hedge fund industry for 10 years, they wanted to use their experience to help real people.
They were frustrated that the options available to normal people who need them most were so much narrower than those open to financial institutions. Creditspring was born as a way to improve peoples’ lives through better access to finance, starting with safer, simpler and cheaper credit when people need it the most.
