NEW YORK, March 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Stratyfy, an award winning innovator of machine learning solutions that mitigate risk, remove bias and enable inclusive lending for financial institutions, announces funding totaling $10 million from prominent investors. The round is co-led by Truist Ventures and Zeal Capital Partners and includes prominent investors such as Mendon Venture Partners, The 98, FIS, and serial entrepreneur Barry J. Glick.
