What a year!
An incredible year of growth, new clients and projects.
Fundsurfer saw the launch of our new funding options section this year which sent our pipeline of clients and projects into the hundreds of millions within a month.
We added 75 new lending partners in 2015 alone, with our partners at Lucid Finance bringing our customers access to another 200+.
Fintech has become a big deal, with companies like SoFi trailblazing, raising $1B to expand and develop.
Their CEO says he wants to compete more with banks than with other lending startups.
"It's something that marketplace lending really loses sight of. If we're really going to compete long term against the banks, we need to diversify products... from the asset or credit side, to the liability side of deposits and wealth management and other functions."
We fully support this way of thinking and we have been focusing our attentions in that direction. For any other crowdfunding platforms, or marketplace lenders we say - collboration not competition will win the day.
As we move towards a new year we would like to thank all of our supporters and customers and we look forward to helping many more amazing projects and companies get funded.
