Debtsy launched in 2016 as a do-it-yourself debt settlement, where users can negotiate directly with their creditors in an effort to settle their debt for less than they originally owed. The company set on a mission to humanize the consumer debt collection industry. And they have sure made huge progress. In 2021 the company raised series A funding and later on in the year they announced a rebrand to January.com.
Debtsy officially changed its name to January! We made this change because we want our name to reflect what we care about most: helping consumers get back on the path to financial stability. January represents a fresh start.
Tyler Gillies, Director of Operations
