Community focused on the Marketplace Lending and Peer to Peer Lending (P2P) space. The goal is to share experiences, advice, and tools for growing this asset class to help shape the very nature of next-generation financial services.
This group was created by Matt Burton, the CEO of Orchard Platform, as a way to develop a community of like minded individuals. Orchard has evolved organically from what began as a small circle of friends with unique perspectives and complementary skill sets, driven by the same interests, and a desire to make a difference in the alternative lending space. Orchard includes experts from both the financial and technology space.
