If you don't have credit history, how do you get access to credit? At least 45 million American adults have this problem. Self Lender helps people establish credit history for the first time. Self Lender launched its beta product on-stage at TechCrunch Disrupt Start-up Battlefield in September 2014. During closing ceremonies, Self Lender was runner-up to Accenture's Open Innovation Enterprise Disrupter Award. Six months later, and after more than 14K users registered, Self Lender joined the Techstars Austin accelerator in March 2015. In February 2016, Self Lender launched in 43 states.
