Categories:

I recently had the opportunity to speak with expert entrepreneur and founder/CEO of Lending Club, Renaud Laplanche.

Renaud is an expert in raising capital, as he has successfully raised multiple rounds of venture and other capital -- totaling over $50 million for both Lending Club and Triple Hop Technologies, of which he was also the founder.

So I was excited to ask him questions about raising capital for one's business and how LendingClub can help individuals and entrepreneurs. In the interview we covered:

  • How LendingClub works
  • The importance of your FICO score in getting a peer to peer loan
  • How your track record of success factors into a successful capital raise
  • That factor matters the most in selecting a VC
  • Renaud's single most important tip for those looking to raise funding
