In February, we were nominated as a finalist for the highest honor in financial technology, and next Tuesday, April 10 in San Francisco, the world will find out who won Executive and Innovator of the Year at the 2018 LendIt fintech conference and awards show.

LendIt is the gold standard event and awards forum for the global financial technology community, bringing together most major fintech players each year in the U.S., Europe, and China. And LendIt organizers don’t select the award winners. Instead winners are selected by having competitors judge each other.

Will a jury of our peers determine that our founder Anthony Hsieh’s vision of a one-stop shop for all homeownership services is the most innovative way to serve customers in the digital era?

We hope so because we know you expect a one-stop shop in housing just like you get in retail.

No more disconnected services for home buying, financing, and improvement. Together, loanDepot and mello Home combine digital simplicity and smart local advice to let you manage all business of your home in one place. 

Also next Monday, April 9 at LendIt, mello Home CEO Chris Heller will deliver a keynote talk sharing more about this vision. It’s the perfect forum for this topic because LendIt is where many paradigm shifts we see in finance today are first shared and discussed.

For the latest throughout the week, catch regular updates right here on the loanDepot blog and stay tuned to our live play-by-play on social.
