Consumer Credit Startup Dovly Partners With Basketball Star Mikal Bridges
Partnership To Educate Consumers That Credit Improvement Does Not Have To Be A Manual, Expensive Process
PHOENIX (October 28, 2021) – Dovly, the fintech startup boosting the financial health of American consumers for free, today announced a partnership with Phoenix basketball star Mikal Bridges to show how technology can make it easy and affordable to improve and maintain credit scores.
Bridges grew up in Philadelphia and played college basketball for the Villanova Wildcats, winning national championships in 2016 and 2018. Over the last several years, Bridges has made a name for himself in the league as a rising star and was a key component in bringing Phoenix to the Finals.
Bridges’ success has been as much about his talent as his quest for financial stability. Raised by a single mother, he witnessed first-hand how hard families like the one he grew up in have to work to get ahead financially. Together, Bridges and his mom worked to develop a plan for financial literacy to help him boost his credit score and create a strategy around major purchases including his care and home.
Bridges teamed up with Dovly because he believes everyone deserves a fair shot in life – that good credit and financial health should be accessible to all Americans.
As a kid, I didn’t quite grasp the concept of credit,” said Bridges. “So from the start, my mom made it a priority for me to develop a good credit score. Now it’s my turn to help others do the same -- and a partnership with Dovly is making that possible.”
While many financial technologies monitor your credit, Dovly also helps consumers fix errors, thereby increasing scores and expanding access to critical products and services. Over 90 percent of Dovly members see their credit scores improve within six months.
Dovly’s proprietary credit improvement engine works by providing automated credit assessment, error identification, credit remediation and credit maintenance -- all for free.
“Seventy percent of college students damage their credit shortly after graduating,” Dovly Co-Founder and CEO Nirit Rubenstein said. “We’ve partnered with Mikal so he can use his personal experience with finances and credit to help his fellow millennials. His influence can make a difference in countless lives.”
