IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QuickBridge, a privately-held, leading financial services firm offering working capital to small businesses is pleased to announce its President, Ben Gold, will serve as a panelist at the flagship LendIt USA 2017 conference at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, March 6-7, 2017. In its fifth year, LendIt is the largest conference series dedicated to connecting the global lending and fintech community.
On Monday, March 6, from 4:15 – 4:55 p.m., Gold will join panelists Adam Cohen, CEO, QuarterSpot; Glenn Goldman, CEO, Credibly; Philippe Marleau, CEO, IOU Financial; George Souri, CEO, LQD Business; and moderator Justin Brownhill, Managing Partner, SenaHill Partners for the Innovation in Lending—Small Business track titled: “Short Duration / High Yield: Protecting Against Interest Rate Hikes.” The panelists will share insights on how interest rate hikes impact their respective businesses—a timely topic, as the Federal Open Market Committee holds its regularly-scheduled meeting just a week following LendIt USA 2017.
“Each participant on this panel is dedicated to providing much-needed liquidity to small businesses, but our product offerings, end-user profiles and capital structures vary,” QuickBridge President Ben Gold explained. “As a result, each panelist will have a very unique perspective. I very much look forward to not only contributing to the conversation, but also having the opportunity to learn from the other leaders on the panel.”
In addition to what he hopes to gain from his participation in the panel discussion, Gold says he looks forward to the general educational and knowledge-sharing opportunities LendIt USA offers. “It’s great that LendIt is expanding beyond lending into other fintech areas like digital wealth management and digital banking,” he said. “It’s definitely information we’ll be able to share with our small- to mid-size business customers.”
LendIt hosts three conferences annually – with LendIt USA in New York City, LendIt Europe in London, and LendIt China in Shanghai. With 5,000 attendees, LendIt USA 2017 is projected to be the largest annual gathering of the lending and fintech industry and NYC’s largest fintech conference. Its community is comprised of thousands of lending and fintech companies, investors, banks, services providers, educators, government officials, and journalists from around the world.
