Editorial: Lending Times has won the Best Journalist Coverage

Dear Readers,

Lending Times has won the Best Journalist Coverage from the LendIt Industry Awards on Tuesday, March 9th, 2017. The other nominees were Reuters, Business Insider, deBanked, Bankless Times and Tradestreaming. The award was earned for “the journalist who has provided the most insightful and original coverage about lending innovation and fintech.”

We are extremely honored to receive this award only 1 year after debuting Lending Times.

We would like to thank first the entire industry for helping us with sharing the stories, the info and everything we needed in order to do our best coverage possible.  We couldn’t have done this without the help and assistance of our colleague journalist as well. We would like to thank them as well. Every story we write is built on top of info and research done our colleagues as well.

We would also like to thank Ron Suber, Peter Renton and Jason Jones for always being encouraging and helpful. We would also like to thank our advisors Hrant Antreasyan, Cyndi Hunter, Dara Albright and everybody who has provided us ongoing feedback on how to improve. We will never stop asking, please tell us how we can do better. And thank you to all the industry colleagues with whom we have ongoing interesting discussions that lead to new exciting articles like Ram Ahluwalia, Bruce Bloomingdale, Gregory Nowak…they are too numerous to list them all here. Thank you!

We believe in our industry. I have built multiple businesses and I chose to focus on the lending industry because I see it as a win-win-win for the borrowers, the platforms, and the investors.

We are here to be objective and we will continue to stay close to the facts, both positive and negative for the industry. We believe that being objective is the best way to help this industry we believe in.

And last but not least, Lending Times is growing. We welcome and encourage submissions for publications following our author guidelines here. And we are also seeking additional writers and journalists. Please reach out.

About where we are going next: we have a lot of ideas. Please stay tuned for new adventures!
