The following isn't a recommendation from me to do any investing--but I will say two things. First, we all know FICO is a game financial institutions play that consumers get the short end of the stick on--so any attempts to subvert it or use that system to your advantage is worth doing in my book. Second, I have to admire any founder who puts their pitch up there for over 13,000 people to see and pick apart. It's not the easiest thing to do and so I'll give an extra thanks to the ROSCA Finance team for sponsoring this week's newsletter with this note:
Invest in ROSCA Finance through SeedInvest! We are a financial platform that allows users to improve their FICO credit score through borrowing, saving, and investing with friends and peers.
