What is Skeps?

Skeps, co-founded by Tushar and Prerit Srivastava, is a fintech platform designed to address challenges in accessing financial products. Leveraging the co-founders' expertise in technology, lending and risk, Skeps employs a distributed blockchain model, seamlessly integrating into the buyer's journey, whether online or in person.

Skeps uses advanced technology to assess credit differently, employing machine learning to analyse unconventional data. This allows those with limited credit history to access financial products (like Alternative Airlines Pay Later). This new method breaks entry barriers, enabling more people, who might be excluded otherwise, to explore the world and have the freedom to fly.

At its core, Skeps operates as a multi-lender credit data engine, revolutionising credit flows by enabling banks to distribute the most suitable financial products to creditworthy customers. By enhancing the overall lending process, Skeps aims to provide a customer-friendly experience, reducing the friction associated with credit applications. Merchants also benefit from improved metrics at every stage of the path to purchase, making the platform a valuable solution for the financial industry.

In summary, Skeps disrupts industry norms by placing financial decisions directly in the customer's journey, optimising efficiency and satisfaction in the financial product acquisition process.
