About Vesu

We enable permissionless lending markets on Starknet. Our mission is to create the best crypto lending experience and to empower people around the globe to access, use and build new financial tools. We believe in the value of neutral technology as an accelerator for innovation and growth.

Three values guide us:

Open: Truly borderless markets require a fully open and neutral protocol. We are dedicated to creating permissionless protocols so that people around the globe are able to use and build new lending applications.

Transparent: Empowering users with new financial tools requires full transparency over the risks and rewards involved. We provide the information and tools necessary for users to make informed decisions.
