SAN FRANCISCO— Candace Klein, CEO and Founder of SoMoLend (http://www.somolend.com/), will present at FinovateSpring in San Francisco May 8 and 9. SoMo will be the only crowdfunding platform present at the conference and will roll out its national platform that connects entrepreneurs in need of funding with local organizational investors, such as chambers of commerce, municipalities, banks, local governments, business associations, franchisors and corporations.
SoMo is designed with the capability of allowing and promoting peer-to-peer lending, by which business borrowers can get loans from friends and family, customers, Twitter followers, Facebook friends and LinkedIn connections. SoMo will launch peer-to-peer lending as soon as key provisions of the JOBS Act go into effect. SoMo’s online platform is live, and small business borrowers in need of a loan can apply for financing today.
Organized by the Finovate Group, Finovate is a showcase of the newest financial and banking technology innovations from leading established companies and young startups.
“As the only crowdfunding platform present, we have an opportunity to represent the industry and showcase how crowdfunding technology will open so many doors for entrepreneurs seeking financing. With the recent signing of the JOBS Act into law, this is a very exciting time for our industry,” said Candace Klein, CEO and Founder of SoMoLend.
