Leap Credit Selected to Present at Venture Atlanta 2018

Fintech startup offers consumers quick, technology-driven access to short-term loans

ATLANTA, Oct. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Atlanta-based fintech startup, Leap Credit, has been selected out of over six hundred of applicants as one of the top 15 venture stage technology companies in the Southeast presenting at Venture Atlanta 2018. The 11th annual Venture Atlanta, the Southeast's premier event for connecting technology innovation and investment capital, will be held October 16-17 in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Leap Credit will be presenting on Tuesday, October 16th. This exciting opportunity will provide Leap Credit a chance to introduce itself to top-tier venture-capital investors along with local business incubators.

"We will have provided a lower cost alternative installment loan to over ten thousand customers in less than eighteen months, while only having a team of eight. We have great angel, VC, and institutional investors who believed in our values and team, which has provided consistency, transparency, and performance. The Venture Atlanta selection gives us an opportunity to tell our story to a regional and national audience to help us continue this rapid growth pace," said JP James, Chairman of Leap Credit.

Leap Credit launched in 2017 with a mission to offer consumers an incredible personal experience while providing access to $750 average short term installment loans that are fiscally more responsible and risk based with unparalleled speed. In less than a year, the company has grown from providing lending services in a single state to eight states. Its proprietary, fully-automated loan management is able to underwrite loans within 6 seconds and has the capacity to fund loans in 5 minutes. Machine learning combined with traditional credit models have enabled Leap to offer credit to unserved consumers who major financial institutions are not lending to.

"For eleven years, Venture Atlanta has been connecting the Southeast's best and brightest innovators with top-tier investors and other leaders in our technology ecosystem—helping to launch over 400 companies and secure over $2.6 billion in funding," said Allyson Eman, executive director of Venture Atlanta. "This year, we're thrilled to be showcasing the strongest and largest roster yet of both early and venture-stage companies. These companies reflect the incredible pool of talented people and continued opportunities for growth and innovation within our technology community."
