LendKey debuted its MarketPlace that creates and manages online lending programs for banks:
Leveraging LendKey’s experience in building real-time loan-origination systems, the LendKey MarketPlace will empower consumers to browse, customize, compare and complete the entire loan-shopping process via a single interface. This represents a dramatic step forward from current consumer-loan marketplaces which collect consumer information, and may provide some pricing information, but eventually transfer the borrower elsewhere to complete and submit the loan.
Presentrts: Vince Passione, CEO and founder, and Strati Papageorge, chief product officer
Product Launch: June 2015
Metrics: LendKey’s online lending platform is used by over 300 credit unions and banks and has raised more than $750M in funding for loans to more than 35,000 borrowers. Our success to-date is due in great part to some key partnerships, including CUNA Strategic Services and Western Independent Bankers (as an endorsed service provider); numerous state credit-union leagues and bank associations, and consumer financial service providers like Intuit (Mint.com) and Credit Karma. LendKey raised $23.5M in equity from backers, including Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Updata Partners, and DFJ Gotham Ventures. We have more than 100 full time employees split between our New York City headquarters and an office in Cincinnati, Ohio.
