Seamless and Scalable
In a land far, far away, there lived a tribe of bankers, accountants, programmers, scientists, testers, and advisors all fighting for the underdog. Fighting for those fueling the economy. Fighting for those providing jobs and services in all corners of the country – small businesses.
This diverse tribe of defenders saw that the backbone of our economy needed support.Small businesses support our economy, but who supports the small businesses? Our team knew first-hand how SMBs lack the advantages of larger organizations when it comes to systems, processes, technology and bandwidth.It’s critical that they gain access to capital quickly in order to thrive and grow.
Our heroes understood that scale was required to reach as many small businesses as possible through the vast network of lenders and creditors with the power to deploy capital. From there a platform unlike any other was born. AI Adjudicator™: the one platform to (rule them all) enables any lender or creditor to adjudicate risk efficiently and economically. Initially called Lendified Technologies, our team of defenders rebranded to Judi but continue to develop AI technology tools for instantly evaluating, judging, and decisioning on small business risk.

Chief Executive Officer
Monique Morden has a data driven background combining over 20 years of experience in customer intelligence and over 10 years in technology. Monique played a role in disrupting the market research industry as a senior executive at Vision Critical, where their cloud based customer intelligence platform created an innovative alternative to traditional market research.
Inspired by the transformative power of technology, Monique co-founded Mentio in 2014, where the goal was to leverage machine learning algorithms to analyze trends and patterns in the cloud accounting data of small businesses. The result was a mobile first automated cash flow forecasting tool for small business owners, acting as an early warning system for cash flow issues. While taking part in Techstars (Seattle 2015), Mentio realized the value of their application to the alternative lending space leading to Lendified recognizing the power of Mentio’s cash flow algorithm to their credit engine, spurring an acquisition by Lendified Holdings in March, 2016.
Monique is a graduate of the Masters of Business Administration program at Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University; and an Honours B.Sc graduate from the University of Guelph. Monique is based in Vancouver with her husband and three teenage daughters where they spend many hours ripping powder at Whistler.
