TransUnion, a global provider of information services, is partnering with the University of Chicago’s Polsky Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship to enhance start-ups by implementing cutting-edge data assets.

The partnership will provide select UChicago student teams with access to TransUnion’s Startup Credit Kit, a series of innovative solutions that allow early-stage companies to test out business model concepts, determine product viability and explore untapped opportunities in promising market segments.

The Startup Credit Kit involves two packages to support start-ups through the planning and launch phases. The Planning Package features general solutions for early-stage development, while the Launch Package includes personalized solutions for start-ups going live.

Starr Marcello, executive director of the Polsky Center, comments, “We are thrilled to partner with TransUnion and offer this program to our students so they may access crucial tools and information for successfully launching a business.”
