Plentina is a Silicon Valley-headquartered early stage fintech start-up company that aims to give access to credit to the world’s dynamic emerging middle class. There are close to 4B underbanked people in the world, and mostly do not have readily access to credit even if they deserve it. We believe that through the use of data in your everyday lives and in collaboration with large corporate partners, we can assess creditworthiness of an individual and offer credit specific to the emerging middle class. Plentina was started by two Stanford graduates that are alums of tech companies like Google and finance giants like Bridgewater Associates and Charles Schwab.
