Stephen Dash Founder CEO Discusses the Student Loan Online Marketplace Show 059

Stephen Dash is the founder of Credible a student loan marketplace for parents, educators and college-bound students to get information about borrowing money for college education.  You may recall that I interviewed the Chairman of this company Ron Suber who is involved in so many successful startup companies.

Stephen Dash is 33 years of age, Australian Tech Entrepreneur.  At 28 Stephen left Australia for Silicon Valley. Prior to the company IPO Stephen raised 26 million and another $68 million from the IPO.  Now the company is valued at over $306 million and he owns 45%.  Truly an amazing story. But the story is just getting started, so many big things are in store for Credible!
Credible’s founding principle is to provide borrowers the level of transparency they deserve. As a multi-lender marketplace that allows borrowers to receive competitive loan offers from its vetted partners, Credible empowers consumers to take control of their financial futures. Borrowers can fill out one form, then receive and compare numerous personalized offers and choose which best serves their individual needs. Credible is fiercely independent, committed to delivering fair and unbiased solutions in online lending. Credible is based in San Francisco, California.

When it comes to private student loans there is only one company in the online marketplace that insures loans in the United States.  Reliamax was approached by Sallie Mae back in 2006 to enter the private student loan market.  The company is also on the Credible platform on the lender student loan side of the business.

What you’ll learn on today’s show is what does America’s student loan market debt of $1.4 trillion mean to you.
How to benefit from the latest online student loan marketplace technology in the US.
How to really apply for loans and get help funding your education.
Family student loan options and education assistance.

We always talk resources in every show.  The show with Stephen Dash is no different.  So many topics are covered from: Simon Franks, Chairman, Redbus Group, Nasdaq, New York Stock Exchange and Prosper.

We also discussed Prosper competitor Lending Club.  You may recall earlier in the Listenup Show season 1 I had the pleasure of interviewing Alex ‘Pete’ Hart who was a Board member of Lending Club.

We also mentioned lender Citizens Bank
and how Credible was the biggest tech IPO on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in 2017.
