Nova Credit Named to Forbes List of America’s Best Startup Employers 2023 For Second Consecutive Year


SAN FRANCISCO—March 9, 2023—Nova Credit, the world’s leading consumer-permissioned credit bureau, has been named to the Forbes list of America’s Best Startup Employers for 2023, marking the company’s second consecutive appearance. This recognition comes weeks after Nova Credit was named a Great Place to Work, also for the second consecutive year.

Informed by an in-depth analysis of over seven million data points collected from 2,600 qualified companies, the Best Startup Employers examines the best performing startups as an employer through defined KPIs to guide potential candidates in finding innovative and stable startups to work for. Only companies headquartered in the U.S., founded between the years 2013 and 2020, employing at least 50 employees, and exhibiting a startup structure were considered for the evaluation.

“To be recognized as a great employer is truly honorable, especially when I can attribute this success directly to our team of ‘Novans,’” said Misha Esipov, co-founder and CEO of Nova Credit. “We would not be where we are today if it weren’t for our amazing team. They are the reason we have been able to develop such a strong culture that can’t be replicated elsewhere.”
