About us

A mission-driven team, solving one of the world's most complex problems

Our story

Nova started its journey as a graduate research project at Stanford University in 2015 and has since evolved into the premier cross-border credit reporting agency. Our team comes from all over the world and is passionate about empowering consumers to use their data to improve financial access.

Today, Nova is a mission-driven company solving the problem of credit access for immigrants. We've built world-class technology to enable immigrants to transport their credit history around the world. We build integrations with credit databases internationally and allow lenders global access through a single API. In short, we've created the global platform for financial identity mobility so that immigrants never have to start from scratch again.

Nova is revolutionizing the way consumers own and share their information and enabling them to access the credit and rentals they deserve.
