Happy Two-Year Anniversary at PeerStreet! We can’t believe how time flies and we couldn’t be more proud of where we are today! Only two years ago, PeerStreet launched our platform to the public during Money 20/20, an annual nationwide financial services conference. Below are pictures of our team cutting the ribbon on our booth to celebrate our launch.
Our co-founders, Brew Johnson and Brett Crosby, were back at the conference this past week. In the last two years we’ve experienced remarkable growth and now have over 70 employees, along with investments on our platform in over 30 states. Last month, we hit a milestone of over half a billion in loans funded and still have zero losses to our investors. We want to thank all of our customers who have supported us from the beginning. Your constructive feedback has helped us develop into the organization we are today.
In addition to our investors and lenders, we’ve also had incredible support from many reporters and publications across the board. In particular, reporters within the alternative investment industry were some of the first to write about PeerStreet, like George Popsescu of Lending Times, Tony Zerucha of Bankless Times, Glenn Leibowitz at Inc., Daniel Lanyon at AltFi, Diana Asatryan at Bank Innovation, Peter Renton at Lend Academy, Samantha Hurst at CrowdFund Insider, Omri Barzilay at Forbes and Chris Lustrino at Simple.Innovation.Change. Certainly, no less important are the bloggers and podcasters in the space who have also covered us. We are particularly grateful for the flattering reviews from Mr. Money Mustache, Ian Ippolito of Real Estate Crowdfunding Review, Invest Like A Boss, and GenY Finance Guy, but there have been many, many others.
As we continue to build out our platform, we’ve received recognition from several organizations for our work, including Best Peer-to-Peer Lending Platform from the FinTech Breakthrough Awards, Innovator of the Year in Lending from Think Realty Magazine, and Top Emerging Real Estate Platform from the LendIt Industry Awards. We were also recently listed as one of the “Top 10 Startups To Work For In Los Angeles.”
These awards motivate us to keep making progress, but we are still reminded of where we came from in the beginning with only a handful of employees and an idea to revolutionize the mortgage industry. We hope you are enjoying the journey with us. We look forward to your continued feedback and support. If you have an idea of how we can continue to improve, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
