When I started Credible in 2012, consumers could not accurately evaluate their options for borrowing and refinancing student debt.
SAN FRANCISCO, California (PRWEB) April 05, 2017
EY today announced that Stephen Dash, founder and CEO of Credible (Credible.com), is a semifinalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017 Northern California Region Award. Now celebrating its 31st year, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs in over 145 cities and 60 countries who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
San Francisco-based Credible is a fintech company that empowers consumers by bringing transparency and simplicity to the process of borrowing and refinancing debt. Credible pioneered an approach that allows consumers to see personalized rates from multiple lenders in real time. After launching in the student loan refinancing category, Credible has since expanded to student loan origination and personal loans.
“When I started Credible in 2012, consumers could not accurately evaluate their options for borrowing and refinancing student debt,” Dash said. “We’ve since filled that void with our consumer-centric marketplace, and we are looking forward to applying our approach to other financial services categories.”
Today, Credible has deep partnerships with a diverse range of lenders and has been endorsed by more than 130 membership organizations, including the American Medical Association, Georgia Tech Alumni Association and United Airlines MileagePlus loyalty program. Last year alone, more than 85,000 people qualified for loan offers through Credible.
Dash was selected as a semifinalist by a panel of independent judges. Finalists will be announced Monday, May 15, and winners will be announced at a black-tie Awards Gala on Friday, June 23, with more than 700 Founders, CEOs and other business leaders in attendance, at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the overall national award winner, will be announced at the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 18, 2017. The awards gala is the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
