Overview

A $40b market + Biggest Player + Disruptive idea =Bxblue


Bxblue is the star of the Brazilian $40 billion secured personal loans market for government workers and retirees. Loans that were taken out offline are now in one place, on one platform, with no middlemen, with valuable advantages for all. Banks earn more. Customers get better deals. Loyalty and returning clients are guaranteed.

Bxblue allows to compare and select loans in Brazil quickly and easily, with complete price transparency. The team is supported by Y Combinator (class of Summer 2017) and their aim is to help government workers and retirees find the best offers on the personal secured loans market. These clients have a continuous and guaranteed income which allows the banks to offer the best possible rates in Brazil.

How it was:  Most of these types of loans were taken out manually, through banks, their agents or brokers acting in their interest. This means higher rates for customers and lack of long term relationships for banks –which are important, as this means that they have access to all the loans a client would take out over their entire lifetime. Bank and client both lose. The market is not transparent. The best offers are hard to find.

Bxblue is disrupting this process. It is creating a platform where borrowers choose the bank and the best deal online, also allowing banks to form those important long term relationships with clients direct.

Bxblue wants to become the platform of choice for Brazilian borrowers, turning them into a loyal base, offering not just loans but refinancing options as well.

Bxblue recently had its first birthday in April. It has signed up 11 financial institutions. Now it's time to go after borrowers!
