Plum Lending Announces New Funding, Technology and Tools for Local Commercial Real Estate Borrowers at Plum Morning Jam Event With Mayor Stephen Benjamin on May 3rd

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, April 27, 2016–Plum Lending will announce the availability of $100 million in fresh commercial real estate capital for commercial real estate owners in Columbia and surrounding cities. The announcement will be made at an event with Mayor Stephen Benjamin on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, at the Capital City Club from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.

“Plum is committed to commercial real estate owners in Columbia,” said Plum Founder and CEO Bill Fisher. “Our goal is to make technology as accessible as our people. We want to make the lending process for commercial real estate borrowers a delight, not a nightmare.”

Focused on $1-15 million dollar commercial real estate loans, Plum is not a bank but a lending platform that understands owners needs, offering smart tools and products. The goal is to offer a game-changing borrowing experience for office, retail, industrial, multifamily, hospitality and self-storage owners.

The Plum Morning Jam event will serve as Plum’s official kickoff in the Columbia market. Plum Lending launched in Boise, Idaho and Madison, Wisconsin earlier this year.

Plum Morning Jam Lineup:

  • Bill Fisher, CEO and Founder of Plum Lending and the author of The Six Secrets of Raising Capital, will share insights on how Plum Lending is bringing new capital and new lending technology to Columbia for commercial real estate owners borrowing $1-15 million.
  • Columbia Mayor Stephen Benjamin will discuss the local commercial real estate landscape and aspects of doing business in Columbia.
  • Robin Waites, Executive Director of Historic Columbia, will discuss preservation and growth.
  • Dan Van Dyke, Executive Vice President of leading independent real estate economics consulting firm Rosen Consulting Group will discuss national commercial real estate property trends.
