Forbes Under 30 social entrepreneurs, Nigerian-born entrepreneur Wemimo and his business partner Goel co-founded Esusu in 2019. The mobile platform helps individuals mostly from marginalized communities save money, access capital and build credit. Renters typically don’t get credit for making their monthly payments on time; Esusu’s platform has helped change that. It partnered with Equifax in January to use its rent-reporting platform to power credit scores for renters. In May, Esusu launched a fund that provides rental assistance for those most affected by Covid-19. It's since raised nearly $200,000 for the fund. With more than 200,000 users to date, the startup expects revenue to reach $1.2 million this year.
