TIME magazine recognized the non-profit Upsolve on its annual Best Inventions of 2020 list
Rohan Pavuluri ’18 founded Upsolve while studying statistics at Harvard. TIME’s award recognizes Upsolve for assisting thousands of low-income Americans households eliminate more than $250 million in total debt. Upsolve does this by helping people who cannot afford lawyers file for bankruptcy protection with an online web app.
Looking back at his time as a statistics concentrator starting Upsolve, Pavuluri said "As we’ve scaled, we collect millions of data points about how low-income individuals use our software and where they may drop off. My statistics courses on analyzing real world data and designing experiments have been invaluable as we’ve made sense of our data and iterated on our product."
