Banking 2.0 – FinovateStartup: Focus on Credit Karma

Banking 2.0 – FinovateStartup: Focus on Credit Karma

FinovatestartuplogoI covered the first Finovate event organized by Jim Bruene back in October 2007 (in New York City). The event was such a success (it sold out in only 6 weeks) that Jim decided to organize two more Finovate events in 2008: FinovateStartup & Finovate 08.

I was delighted when Jim invited me to be the official live blogger on NetBanker at FinovateStartup in San Francisco.  Before the event, I plan to blog about most of the 40 startups which will demo their products. My goal is to give you a brief overview of those innovative startups.

Credit Karma, track your credit score online
CreditkarmaI contacted Nichole Mustard, VP Business Development, via Linkedin.

Credit Karma offers a new way to track your credit score and a unique way to benefit from it. For the first time you can get a truly free credit score with no hidden costs or obligations. Based on your score, you gain access to exclusive offers from companies that value your creditworthiness.

They recently launched the Credit Karma Blog. The blogroll is short. It is (of course) linked to NetBanker, but more surprisingly it is also linked to the official Prosper blog. But is it really a surprise when you have Prosper’s Founder & CEO, Chris Larsen, as one of your investors…

I invite you to check the coverage of Credit Karma on NetBanker.
