Brex co-founder and CEO Henrique Dubugras said: “Startups that have raised millions and are poised for hyper-growth can’t get slowed down hassling with banks requiring personal guarantees and offering meager credit limits.

“Traditional credit models look at how much a company can pay back in a year based on profits, often disqualifying startups. We rebuilt the financial services tech stack from the ground up and created a new kind of card to specifically meet the needs of startups.”

Headquartered in San Francisco, Brex was founded in 2017 by the founders of Brazilian payments processor
