Here at Lendio, we’re passionate about small business.We know that 75% of new jobs are created by small business, and 50% of the jobs in the U.S are in small business.  We truly believe that the small business sector is the backbone of the American economy, and the catalyst for future growth.  That’s why we are dedicated to helping the next Great American Entrepreneur achieve their dream.

Because of our love for small business, we’ve created a new website called Faces of Main Street. With this new site, we’ve created a platform for people to tell every business owners story about how they’re achieving their American Dream. Photographers can show off their talent by finding these business owners and capturing their drive, passion, and character in a portrait.

Brock Blake, our CEO, said “Faces of Main Street is our tribute to the inspiring stories of entrepreneurs and small business owners who make our nation so great. We believe that every story needs to be told and we are on a mission to do this through Faces of Main Street.”

“At Lendio we hear stories of small business owners daily that are changing their communities and the US economy as a whole,” says Brock. “We created Faces of Main Street for business owners, photographers and those with a passion for the businesses in their communities to join with us sharing stories in minutes through our user friendly site with the goal of telling all 28 million stories.”

Burke Alder, VP of marketing at Lendio, said  “While you can inspire the nation with one story, our goal is to inspire the nation with millions of them showcased on Faces of Main Street.”
