Clutch is transforming lending for credit unions to enhance the financial well-being of US consumers. The average American carries over $155,000 in household debt. Unlike fintech lenders and for-profit banks that often issue high-interest loans, credit unions operate as non-profit lenders offering lower cost loans.
Clutch, an Andreessen Horowitz backed vertical SAAS company, develops software that empowers credit unions to function as fintech lenders and responsibly lend to over 130M Americans. Our rapid growth has seen us expand from a single-digit customer base to a diverse portfolio of medium to very large enterprise customers.
We are an ambitious team passionate about redefining lending and account opening via credit unions. Our vision is to establish credit unions as market leaders in lending through consumer/fintech grade member experiences that integrate seamlessly with enterprise backends.
At Clutch, our Go-to-Market efforts are instrumental in turning this vision into reality. We are tripling in revenue in 2023 and have 110 months of cash runway to do so.
