On Deck had a strong presence at this year’s BAI trade show, Retail Delivery, the largest retail financial services event in the world. Attended by hundreds of influential banking professionals, the conference was an excellent opportunity to showcase our technology and recent accomplishments.
Our founder, Mitch Jacobs led a panel titled “The Main Street Opportunity: How Technology Is Changing Small Business Lending,” alongside Bob Kaufman, Senior Vice President for U.S. Bank’s Small Business Segment. With more than 130 people in attendance, On Deck shined as a key element to this small business lending sector by demonstrating how the our platform can be leveraged by banks to increase their small business lending.
Former President Clinton shared his insight on the industry and recognized On Deck – the only company he mentioned – during his inspirational keynote speech, referencing their commitment to delivering capital where it matters most – to Main Street businesses.
NetBanker – the leading financial technology publication reviewed the show and referred to On Deck’s small business credit/lending engine as “most likely to change the world.”
While we know our platform is fundamentally improving capital access for small businesses nationwide, it’s always nice to have a nod from the former President of the United States!
A successful show indeed.
