Sharing details about the new milestone and quarter results, Brock Blake, CEO of Lendio, stated:

  • 2,400 new businesses funded, which is a 133% increase over first quarter

The release of the second quarter results comes nearly a month after Lendio announced its support for the SMART Box initiative, which was developed by members of the Innovative Lending Platform Association (ILPA). Blake commented:

“As leaders and stewards in this industry, we feel it is imperative to rally around a common ground of best practices so the responsible flow of capital to Main Street continues and expands. Providing business owners with the most complete information is one way to make sure that happens.”
