Next up Brock Blake, Founder and CEO of Lendio, talks with Alan about how he got a PPP loan to make sure that he could keep paying his employees during these trying times. Brock’s company has funded over $8 billion dollars in PPP loans and saved 1.2 million jobs. Brock talks about how his company prepared to avoided system crashes because of the PPP loan application volume in large part due to everyone at his company working 20 hours a day for a while in order to make sure every company was able to get a loan as fast as possible so they could stay open. Brock was determined to make sure everyone was able to get a loan who wanted one. As a result, they’ve had over 7,000 people thank them and give them good reviews.
