Introducing Neha Hebbar

upstarter neha hebbar

With our sights set on disrupting the $3.2 trillion consumer credit industry, we know our success is directly related to assembling a team with extraordinary talent and drive. We don’t hire good, we only hire great candidates, giving offers to only 4.7% of the people we interview—making us more selective than Stanford.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce the newest member of our team, Neha Hebbar.

Neha comes to Upstart from Credit Suisse where she was an Equity Research Analyst specializing in internet technology companies. An expert on market trends in the technology sector, Neha worked on high-profile Internet research reports, financial models, and IPOs.

Neha’s financial prowess and analytical skills will help us build a seamless user experience and back-end operations that scale with our platform.

When asked why she chose to leave Wall Street to join our team, Neha describes the allure of our innovative approach to combining technology and finance.

“I initially decided to go into this industry because I strongly believe in using finance as a tool to improve people’s lives. However after graduating from MIT, I’ve constantly encountered an increasingly negative perception of the industry’s impact on the world. Technology has continued to transform all types of industries over the past few years, while finance has remained seemingly stuck in its ways. The recent rise of financial tech companies like Upstart has been both refreshing and inspiring and Upstart is particularly positioned to help people by extending credit to those who may otherwise have been turned away. The chance to join Upstart and help provide people with access to capital, and therefore access to financial freedom, education, healthcare, etc., was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.”

By building a team comprised of the people who helped grow and shape the top companies in technology and finance, we hope to bring together the best of both worlds and create a product that you will love and a company that continually innovates and inspires.
