Lendio, the online leader* in helping business owners secure financing is pleased to announce founder and CEO Brock Blake to participate in keynote panel at AltLend conference to discuss how new players in small business finance have altered the lending space. Putting the Small Business Loan Marketplace Under a Microscope The panel will discuss the fallout of commercial banks deemphasizing small business lending and the impact of new federal initiatives on the market. “Small business still has a lot of pent up demand for capital,” said Blake. “Unfortunately the traditional approach to small business financing just isn’t meeting all that demand and small business growth is suffering. The bank isn’t the only source of small business financing. We should take a more holistic approach to the products we offer small business to meet the need—alternative loan products have a big part to play in that approach.” Focusing a microscope on the market, the panel will identify the real demand for small business loans, what new products and business models are having real impact, and how greater access to capital by small business will strengthen local economies and create new jobs.
