A pitch at ACS 2012 resulted in some straight talk advice that they weren’t quite ready for investment. Returning to present at ACS 2013, P2BInvestor was triumphant in raising their seed round on a $3MM valuation. The seed round was syndicated through RVC and other investors. The momentum continued through 2014 and 2015 with an additional, successful round and a valuation climbing to $11.5MM. With a growth rate exceeding Lending Club (the leader in peer-to-peer lending), no portfolio losses to date and a net average return of 12.5% APR, P2BInvestor is proving to be a competitive force in the commercial lending space. A third round with RVC investors is anticipated to drive P2Binvestor to break-even by year end 2016 and 4x revenue by 1Q2017!
