Credit Sesame Raises $16 Million in New Funding


Q. What’s one of the few things more exciting than demoing your technology at Finovate this spring?

A. Having a $16 million investment waiting for you when you return home.

That’s the story of Credit Sesame, which combined its latest appearance at Finovate with news of $16 million in new funding.

The Series D round was led by Syncora Alternative Investments, and featured participation from IA Capital, Inventus Capital, Globespan Capital, Menlo Ventures, and other investors. IA Capital Partners served as an adviser to Syncora. The additional funding will help the company expand its credit and loan-management services; “ramp up” marketing; and open offices in San Francisco. Credit Sesame’s total capital stands at more than $35 million.

Credit Sesame specializes in helping consumers get access to and track their credit and loan data. The service provides free credit scores and monitoring, including daily alerts, identity-theft protection, and analytics tools to help consumers better manage their personal credit, or choose the right mortgage or auto loan. Credit Sesame has more than five million registered users, and monitors more than $128 billion in loans.

A five-time Finovate alum, Credit Sesame was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Mountain View, California. The company launched its co-branded service with Siri integration at FinovateSpring 2015, featuring partner, Iontuition. The video of the demonstration will be available in our Video Archives section by the end of the week.
