Our mission:
Lower the costs and barriers of borrowing for everyday people.

How it all began.

A byproduct of the Y Combinator startup program accelerator, AvantCredit® was founded in 2012 with the goal to improve the borrowing experience for middle-income consumers. The AvantCredit name quickly became synonymous with responsible consumer lending services, a reputation that continues to this day.

Avant has since streamlined the online borrowing process and helped over 1,500,000 people get the funding they deserve. Avant is backed by some of the most well-regarded investors in the fintech space.
