Detailed Description

Update

SoFi is a leading peer-to-peer lender focused on transforming financial services currently addressing the flawed student loan market. SoFi’s affinity-based marketplace connects high-quality alumni borrowers and investors directly, benefitting them both by bypassing the banks.

SoFi was founded by a team of Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) students in the Fall of 2011. SoFi’s inaugural loan program was a $2MM pilot at the GSB that fall. Since then, SoFi has funded over $450 million in loans. SoFi is located in the Presidio in San Francisco, and is backed by a group of leading angel and institutional investors, including Baseline Ventures, Peter Thiel, and Joe Chen, CEO of Renren.
