About the speaker

Stanford graduate Nicky Goulimis is COO and Co-Founder of of Nova Credit. After moving to the U.S. from London in 2014, despite having an excellent credit rating in the UK she was often turned down for credit cards and other services requiring U.S credit history.

To solve this, she co-founded Nova Credit, a platform which enables immigrants to transport their credit histories around the world. It does this by enabling immigrants to share their credit history from their home country with financial service providers, unlocking new consumers for lenders, and new futures for immigrants.

Nicky is a member of GBx.
