I am Testifying on Capitol Hill on Wednesday

House Committee on Small Business

I have to admit, it was a little surreal when the email came in. A congressional staffer emailed me while I was on vacation to ask if I would be interested in testifying in front of the House Committee on Small Business next week. The committee wants to learn more about peer to peer lending and how it applies to small business lending.

After a conversation with this staffer last week I found out on Thursday that I have been invited to testify. So, on Wednesday morning (May 13) at 11am ET I will be on Capitol Hill discussing this industry with some of the leaders of this country. Also testifying will be Sam Hodges of Funding Circle, an MIT professor and a small business owner. If you are interested you can watch these proceedings live here:

I believe they also make these videos available on the committee’s YouTube channel after the fact so if you can’t watch it on Wednesday you should be able to view it later. I will have a post about my experiences later in the week.

So cool! Looking forward to watching this. Also very curious about the questions they’ll ask. Did they provide any beforehand?

I’ll be curious if you use extremely optimistic language that mirrors your writing style. Congratulations!
