About the Company

LendLedger is the first blockchain-based open protocol connecting data providers, lenders and borrowers to help small businesses globally source the two trillion dollars in loans they are unable to get today. LendLedger’s founders and advisors have started or led pioneering ventures in emerging markets including SKS (7 million clients, first microfinance institution to IPO in India), FINO Paytech (70 million clients), and M-PESA in Kenya (largest mobile money provider globally). Unlike many projects, parts of the LendLedger protocol are already in use, powering about $100,000 in loan disbursements daily for Happy Loans, a licensed lender in India. (Banks and licensed lenders who use LendLedger don’t need to hold crypto-assets, reducing barriers to adoption). LendLedger is now pre-selling LOANtokens, which are used to unlock lending credits on the network and give access for data providers, borrowers and others.

About the Speaker – Gautam Ivatury, CEO of LendLedger

Gautam Ivatury is based in NYC and is the co-founder and CEO of LendLedger. He has been a pioneer in expanding financial access using technology for nearly two decades, having started or led ventures such as India’s first microfinance institution to IPO (SKS Microfinance), Kenya’s first mobile-based credit provider (Jipange Kusave), India’s first digital micro-lender (ArthImpact/Happy Loans), and the firm that incubated M-Kopa, Africa’s largest pay-go solar financier. Gautam has also run the Gates Foundation’s largest grantee in financial inclusion (the $26m CGAP technology program at the World Bank), chaired the global telecom association (GSMA) fund for mobile money, advised US-based VC and private equity funds, consulted to Fortune 500 players including Microsoft and Visa, and developed projects in 9 countries. Gautam is a Board Director at Vaya Finserv (a leading Indian MFI), an advisor to Encourage Capital, and an investor in multiple fintech startups.
