When the CARES Act passed in March of last year and the Paycheck Protection Program was announced, it was immediately clear that without the support of data and automation, the large-scale distribution of these critical loans would be virtually impossible.
Looking back a year later, with signs of reopening on the horizon, commercial lending remains irrevocably changed by the pandemic, with one particular trend quickly gaining traction: self service.
Following a successful virtual 2020 event and with an expected turnout of more than 2,500 attendees, this year’s LendIt Fintech USA conference will return in the same format later this month, inviting industry experts to address the emerging trends of the financial services space as it undergoes a rapid upheaval. The three-day event will connect more than 100 participating companies with banks, credit unions, investors, and VCs, and host a seasoned group of speakers.
On April 28 at 4:20pm ET, our CEO Dan will join Jesse Honigberg (Cross River Bank), Christina Riechers (Square), and Kat Utecht (Core Innovation Capital) for a 40-minute discussion around how PPP has changed business banking for good. The session will cover why the new, digitally-driven methods that emerged during the past year are here to stay, and how banking’s future is one of self-service that will largely be driven by data and automation.
