"Pokemon has a slogan saying ‘gotta catch them all’ and our strategy is partly ‘gotta catch them all’ because we build a worldwide credit bureau and we have to work with every country. If we want to achieve in time, we have to expand worldwide.”

While still a student at Stanford, Nicky Goulimis and two fellow students came up with an idea that would end up helping thousands of US immigrants. Fintech company Nova Credit was founded in 2015 to make it easier for immigrants to access financial services. The company has already raised a total of $69M from investors. Nicky, the company’s COO, talks about the inspiration for Nova Credit, the importance of multicultural teams in the company, and how she sealed a collaboration with American Express.
