Prosper.com Announces New CEO and Additional Cash Infusion
Prosper.com has attracted new talent at the top as well as $20M in additional financing from new partner Sequoia Capital.
Vermut states, “I’ve watched with great interest over the past few years as the peer-to-peer lending industry has grown substantially, and I believe Prosper is in a unique position to offer both borrowers and lenders unprecedented access to financial opportunity,”
Prosper is a leading peer-to-peer lending marketplace that connects people who want to invest money with people who want to borrow money. On Prosper.com, borrowers list loan requests between $2,000 and $25,000, and individual lenders invest as little as $25 in each loan listing they select. Over the past six years, more than $400,000,000 in personal loans have originated through the Prosper platform. The unsecured personal loans are used by Prosper borrowers for a variety of purposes including paying down high interest rate debt and helping with small business funding.
