We’re now launching the first in a series of Deep Dives into companies which help investors accelerate alpha and grow. One of Versatile VC’s core investment theses is: “Look for investment processes which are highly dependent on Excel.” Here’s an example of what we’re excited about: Hypercore.ai, the operating system for non-bank lenders .
Roughly 70% of non-bank lenders are primarily tracking their activities in custom excel sheets with macros. This is not a manageable, scalable, way to operate. Hypercore provides a modern SAAS platform for running a lending business.
