Rightfoot is tackling the largest untapped opportunity in fintech — consumer debt, a $14.5+ trillion dollar problem. Backed by Bain Capital Ventures and founders and operators from successful fintech companies like Plaid, Venmo, and Marqeta — we are uniquely positioned to develop APIs that make it possible to integrate debt repayment into any product. Currently, our sights are set on addressing the $1.7 trillion student debt crisis.
Debt accounts are not routable entities like bank accounts. The use cases we bring to life require the development of novel payment rails. We integrate directly with loan servicers whose backends were built in the 1970s to standardize and streamline debt payments.
Women hold two thirds of all student debt (>$1T) despite near equal graduation rates. Systemic racism has led to historically underrepresented groups holding 30%+ more debt than their peers. Rightfoot is enabling life changing technology for millions of people.
This is an incredible opportunity to join a well funded, well supported, and early stage company tackling a massively underserved market. Join Rightfoot as a thought leader, and come make an impact on a multi-trillion dollar problem!
