WASHINGTON, DC – Bredin’s CEO, Stu Richards will be participating as a featured member of the faculty at the 2018 Online SMALL BUSINESS LENDING & INVESTING Summit which will be held February 15, 2018 at the Embassy Row Hotel in Washington, DC.

This summit is being produced by the International Institute for Business Information & Growth LLC (iiBIG) in collaboration with the Innovative Platform Lenders Association (ILPA), the Marketplace Lending Association (MLA), and the National Small Business Association (NSBA). Together, ILPA and MLA member-companies include over 25 online lenders including Breakout Capital Finance, Fundera, Kabbage, Lendio, OnDeck, Street Shares, and The Business Backer and others.

The conference will be attended by 100-125 senior executives representing the investment community, marketplace lenders that specialize in making loans to the SMB market, traditional lenders and others related to the fast-growing alternative small business lending sector.

"We are looking forward to hearing from Stu Richards, a recognized leader in developing marketing strategies for the SMB market," said Don Buford, Founder and CEO of iiBIG, the conference organizer. Stu will be participating on the panel entitled, Knowing your Customers: How Small Business Lenders are Setting Themselves Apart from the Crowd.

Bredin’s clients, business associates and friends are encouraged to attend this event, and the conference organizer is offering “Friends of Bredin” a $200 registration discount.

Cloud-based small business lending hit an all-time high in 2017, and is a maturing and increasingly competitive enterprise. With this new source of competitively priced capital -- which is not always available from traditional lenders -- small businesses are benefiting like never-before. This conference offers participants an opportunity to learn about the latest developments affecting this industry, and to network with representatives from the investment community and other business counterparts.
