At Blend, we’re dedicated to improving consumer lending. We partner with banks and lenders to power frictionless, compliant, and more accessible lending— starting with mortgages. We’re motivated by the fact that our product won’t just affect the lives of a few people in the Bay Area— it affects people all over America.
Blend’s mission is to make the consumer lending ecosystem more transparent and accessible -- starting with mortgages. Mortgages are a $10 trillion industry run on fax machines and spreadsheets. Getting a mortgage today takes multiple months, a giant tower of papers, lots of manual labor and even more back-and-forth, for both lenders and borrowers.
At Blend, we’re building a digital platform for lenders and borrowers that makes the experience more modern, transparent, and accessible to traditionally underserved customers. Our platform that vastly simplifies the loan application process and includes a simple, responsive, borrower platform and a full-featured lender experience. Blend engineers work across the enterprise and consumer software.
Founded in 2012 by a group of former Palantir engineers, Blend raised $100M from Greylock and Emergence Capital in the summer of 2017.
