Howdy Entrepreneurs,

I am involved with a project for my Entrepreneurial Finance class at Babson and we are looking at P2P lending as an option for funding a start-up.  Have any of you used sites like Prosper or LendingClub to finance your businesses?  I am looking for people that also invest in the loans at these companies too.

I just have a couple questions to ask any of you that would be willing to donate some time (maybe 10 minutes?)

Thank you for your help!

This is something I've never considered, but is a really compelling idea.

I'll file it away in my back pocket as something to try, if I need some short-term financing that Kabbage, Amazon Lending, or my bank can't cover.
