The On Deck team headed to Washington, DC earlier this week for AEO’s National Microenterprise Conference. It was a tremendous opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals and organizations who share our passion for helping businesses of all types grow.
On Wednesday On Deck CEO Mitch Jacobs spoke on the “Disruptive Innovations: New Thinking on the Impacts of Technology on Business Lending Innovation and Public Policy” panel, along James Gutierrez, CEO of Progreso Financiero. It was an excellent discussion that shed light on the significant impact that technology can have on the way business owners access capital.
The conference was a huge success, and we received great feedback about our vision for using the On Deck platform to efficiently deliver capital to small businesses in all communities. We look forward to working with the microenterprise community to make our goal a reality.
