Banks Can't Keep Up As FinTech Upstarts Innovate At A Breakneck Pace

The incumbents of the traditional financial services world—banks and VCs, for example—do some things well. Unfortunately, for them, a wave of upstarts is taking advantage of what many traditionalists don’t do well: move at the speed of today’s economy and today’s American small business. OnDeck Capital Inc., on the brink of an IPO, is one of the best examples of how native online finance businesses are using speed to slay the traditional finance industry . Of the many technology-driven benefits OnDeck brings to online business lending, I would say one in particular stands out. Speed. As the founder and CEO of an equity crowd funding platform that facilitates private equity investments in consumer and retail businesses, I see this same disruption taking hold in private equity. Although consumer and retail represent 25% of the economy, it represents less than 5% of angel investing. That is despite data that shows strong returns in the space (3.6x returns in 4.5 years on average according to the Kauffman Foundation). By bringing together investors and businesses on our online platform, we are now able to help companies raise capital in an average of 61 days. Speed wins.
