Grant Schneider

Upstart

Grant Schneider leads the brand new HQ2 in Columbus for Upstart, the leading AI lending platform. Grant has been interested in disrupting the consumer credit market since his father and his wife were both declined for credit cards based on their lack of credit history. He spent the past 5 years working on Upstart’s Data Science team in Silicon Valley building AI models used to extend credit to borrowers left behind by traditional models.

Grant has been hyper-focused on making Upstart the biggest and best tech employer in Columbus, growing the office from 0 to 70 people so far in 2019 while maintaining Upstart’s unique culture with a Columbus spin. Grant obtained his Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. degrees from THE Ohio State University and is the co-author of the textbook "Intuitive Introductory Statistics".
