PitchIt Podcast #41: Jared Shulman and Jerry Shu of Lendica

On episode 41 I talk with Jared Shulman and Jerry Shu of Lendica. Lendica is a truly embedded finance company focused on smart lending. They provide simple and transparent funding solutions for businesses at the point of decision.

Embedded finance has clearly taken off in recent years, and small businesses have become one of the biggest beneficiaries. SMBs finally have solutions that fit their needs, and Lendica is one of those solutions.

Jared, Jerry, and I talk about the different terms being used to describe embedded finance, the potential of a branch-free world in banking, how much fintech has helped SMBs, raising capital, founder advice, and a whole lot more.
