VanFunding 2015: Lendified President Kevin Clark to speak at Crowdfunding Conference

Lendified is excited to be participating in VanFunding 2015, the leading Crowdfunding conference in Western Canada for innovative ventures and businesses seeking to raise seed and growth capital from online crowdfunding markets.

Hosted by the National Crowdfunding Association of Canada on Tuesday, September 29 in downtown Vancouver, VanFunding will be an immersive and interactive half-day event including TEDx style storytelling, start-up pitches, expert presentations and panelists, followed by a networking reception with mentoring opportunities.

Lendified President Kevin Clark will be among the expert panelists as part of a fireside chat on Consumer and Business Lending Platforms.

According to a recent article in BetaKit, “Speakers and event partners for VanFUNDING are a veritable who’s who crowdfunding and marketplace lending platforms in Canada along with leading service providers.”

Kevin Clark will be talking about the latest trends with P2P business lending marketplaces in Canada and abroad, addressing key questions such as:

  • How do lending platforms work and how are they different from equity and other forms of crowdfunding?
  • Where does the capital come from and what are the terms?
  • As a lender, what are the main advantages of investing with lending platforms vs. traditional financial institutions?
  • What requirements do businesses have to meet in order to qualify for your loans?
