"Prior to my previous company Orchard, we were working off this thesis that financial services were involving in a way similar to the what happened in adtech," said founder and CEO Phill Rosen to Tearsheet in February. "Direct relationships were becoming more programmatic and distributed and powered by APIs. As that happens, you need platforms to bring scale, efficiency, and transparency to the industry."

Even's platform evaluates consumers on a rich set of criteria to establish a financial product fit.
