Company Summary

LendSocial plans to introduce a whole new way that small businesses receive funding and interact with their community, and will do this by introducing an online "small business ecosystem." Our first MVP will be a crowdfunding or peer-to-peer lending platform that offers protection from loss, effectively personalizing and democratizing small business lending and interactions. Our mission is to "keep small businesses in business".
