About Shuo

I attended Penn Undergrad (Wharton & Engineering) and Wharton MBA, and have several years of specialty finance experience from Goldman Sachs' Special Situations Group. I previously co-founded ModernLend, an online lender that raised seed funding, won two global startup awards, and partnered with a bank to issue the first credit card for international citizens.
I recently founded a technology-enhanced insurance company for Millennials that offers best-in-class customer engagement, a streamlined online insurance experience, commission free pricing, and proprietary insurance risk scoring.
