Last year, Forbes selected four Finovate alums for its “America’s Most Promising Companies” roster.
This year, Forbes picked five.
Lending Club is back, the veteran of last year’s list climbing from a #12 ranking in 2013 to a #5 in 2014. Also returning is On Deck Capital, which soared from a #94 ranking last year to an #11 ranking this year.
When you look at the other alums to make the 2014 roster, it is clear that success in the lending and capital-raising businesses are what bring in the votes over at Forbes. In addition to Lending Club and On Deck Capital, there is Kabbage coming in at #37.
