Since its founding, LendIt has hosted eight major events for the global lending community. Its mission: connect every major player, platform, investor and service provider in the space. In late 2012 Jason and Bo decided to launch a small gathering to meet other people in the P2P lending industry. They approached Peter, who at the time was the most widely known blogger in the P2P industry. The timing was perfect, and together they launched the inaugural LendIt conference in June 2013. The first event, held in New York City, exceeded their modest expectations, and they knew that they were at the start of something big. Today, LendIt draws an international audience to its conferences in New York, San Francisco, London, Shanghai and Beijing.
