Ken Rees, CEO of Elevate, to Speak at Dallas Techweek Conference


Ken Rees, Chief Executive Officer at Elevate, a leading tech-enabled provider of innovative and responsible online credit solutions for non-prime consumers, will speak on a panel session at Dallas Techweek on Thursday, November 2, at 9:15am CT. The panel will focus on data intelligence, breaking down the hype around data science, and exploring ways companies can turn that hype into actionable business intelligence.

Rees will be joined by local tech talent and founders, including Clarisa Lindenmeyer, Chief of Strategy/Partnerships at Launch DFW; Sravan Ankaraju, President of Divergence.Academy, CEO of Divergence.AI; Dave Copps, CEO of Brainspace; and Steve Hebert, Co-Founder & CEO of Nimbix, Inc.

As a responsible online lender, Elevate has originated $4.9 billion in credit to more than 1.8 million non-prime consumers. Elevate’s data science teams are responsible for underwriting some of the riskiest but neediest customers in the U.S. using technology to make responsible decisions for customers and the business. Since its founding in 2013, Elevate has grown rapidly, went public and simultaneously saved customers more than $2 billion versus the cost of payday loans -- one of the only other options available to non-prime customers. Elevate is also a member of Technet, a national network of technology CEOs and senior executives that promotes the growth of the innovation economy.

Hosted in eight U.S. cities throughout the year, Techweek is a purpose-built conference and media company that partners with tech leaders, corporations, and the community to build a unique experience for investors, entrepreneurs, and Hero Companies.
