  • What is your Business/ Brand about?

    We are lead gen for Auto and student loan refis. We use transcript (academic data) that quantifies the lendability and employability of consumers between 19 and 25 for banks and lenders and then sell them the leads.

    Our technology is like a FICO score, but instead of using a credit history to formulate a score, we use academic data. So, people can get rewarded for their academic performance.

    We need a name for a consumer facing website to collect leads for student loan refinance and car loans for this population. Think Credit Karma or Credible for using academic data as oppose to FICO data.

    This is the direct to consumer website, NOT the B2B side of the website.

    ETA:  It would be good to get some outside the box names.  I've added made up words to the brief.  It would be good to get ideas that don't use the work merit in it too.


    ETA 2:  Please stop using the word Merit.  We have enough. :)

  • What Style or Character should the brand convey?

    serious, but approachable. Credit Karma, Prosper, and Ally bank communicate that they are on the user's side. We also like ideas that communicate the core user value proposition. The word merit is one we have played around with in URLs.
