With its no personal guarantee requirement, the $0-annual-fee Brex Card for Startups card is a good fit for those who fit a specific profile: owners of early-stage startups with high cash flow who need access to high credit. Brex determines the creditworthiness of a business by evaluating its cash flow, spending patterns and financial backing, rather than the applicant's own credit history.
The Brex Card for Startups card works on the Mastercard network, there are no foreign transaction charges, and cardholders can earn rewards, which can jump to elevated rates for those who use the card exclusively. Because the Brex Card for Startups is a charge card, someone seeking a 0% offer or big sign-up bonus should look elsewhere.
