With its digital lending platform, Blend helps financial institutions including Wells Fargo and U.S. Bank increase productivity and deliver exceptional customer experiences.

At Blend, we’re dedicated to improving consumer lending. We partner with banks and lenders to power frictionless, compliant, and more accessible lending— starting with mortgages. We’re motivated by the fact that our product won’t just affect the lives of a few people in the Bay Area— it affects people all over America.
Founded in 2012 by a group of former Palantir engineers, Blend raised $100M from Greylock and Emergence Capital in the summer of 2017. We've just moved into new offices in SF and NY, we're growing quickly, and we're going to need some help.
