Launched in 2015, TheGuarantors is a cutting edge fintech company whose mission is to improve renting affordability and accessibility for millions of renters across the U.S. The 46 million American households renting their homes have a collective $65B locked away in security deposits. Additionally, the company estimates that five million households will struggle to get approved for a new rental in 2022 based on their finances. Its flagship financial and insurance products include Lease Guarantee, allowing renters to qualify for the home of their dreams, and Security Deposit Replacement, a highly affordable alternative to cash security deposits.
Having announced a $50M Series C funding round in April 2022, TheGuarantors has more than doubled its revenue annually since its inception, tripled its revenue in 2021 alone, and is rapidly expanding its footprint, team, and product. The company also ranks as one of Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing companies, Forbes’ best startup employers, and most recently one of The Financial Times’ fastest growing companies in America.
