The investment will accelerate the expansion of Senso’s operations and product offerings into the US market. photo credit: Senso Fintech AI startup Senso raises US$3 million to help financial institutions strengthen client relationships New funding was raised during COVID-19 pandemic to fuel expansion into the US market and transform the way the financial services industry builds client relationships and loyalty during volatile times TORONTO, July 9, 2020 — Senso, a provider of predictive intelligence to financial institutions, today announced the closing of a US$3 million financing round from a syndicate of investors with deep expertise in financial services, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and artificial intelligence. The round is led by Mendoza Ventures (Boston, MA) and Breakaway Growth (San Francisco, CA), with participation from Luge Capital (Toronto, ON), Rising Tide (San Francisco, CA) and iNovia Capital (Toronto, ON). The investment will accelerate the expansion of Senso’s operations and product offerings into the US market. Founded in 2017, Senso’s platform generates high-confidence predictive intelligence for financial institutions to predict behavior and take proactive steps to strengthen client relationships, driving improved retention and loyalty. Its cloud-based platform analyzes first- and third-party data to generate predictive insights about every consumer in the market, which improves over time. “Now more than ever, financial institutions of all sizes need to take a proactive, data-driven approach to providing their clients with timely and personalized services in a way that builds loyalty and trust,” said Saroop Bharwani, CEO and co-founder of Senso. “We’ve made it intuitive and seamless for banks, lenders, and loan servicers to predict behavior, and make adjustments throughout the entire client lifecycle, so that each individual feels like a private banking client.” Senso’s technology seamlessly embeds into financial institutions’ marketing and sales workflows and has broad applicability across lending products, including mortgages, credit cards, point-of-sale lending, automotive, and student loans. Senso’s product offering has become even more relevant during the COVID-19 crisis with many banks allowing their borrowers to defer mortgage payments. As the loan forgiveness cliff approaches this fall, servicers equipped with Senso’s predictive intelligence will be empowered to proactively engage appropriate clients more cost-effectively, and retain them with best in class service. This is especially important in the US market where average mortgage retention rates continue to sit at historical lows. Since graduating from the inaugural cohort of Toronto’s NextAI accelerator in 2017 and Techstars in 2018, Senso has helped Canada’s most renowned financial institutions, that carry well over US$1 trillion in total mortgage debt, identify opportunities to earn millions in additional revenue. As a result, they are able to adopt a scalable approach to enhancing all of their client relationships by leveraging data-driven tools and tactics typically used by big tech firms to increase retention and transform the client experience. “The Senso team is redefining how the financial services industry leverages predictive intelligence at a crucial moment in history when it needs it most,” said Mendoza Ventures General Partner, Adrian Mendoza. “Financial institutions, globally, require a competitive advantage to deliver delightful experiences, and the ones who adopt Senso’s data-driven strategy will be able to confidently build loyalty and lifetime value.” — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — – About Senso Senso is a Toronto-based Fintech AI company which transforms fragmented data into meaningful interactions to improve loyalty and profitability.
