rocket launchIf you feel like you’re falling behind on the news, you’re not alone. Things are happening FAST. here’s what you need to know:

5/7/13: Google Looks to Profit from Alternative Lending. Say hello to Mother Google.

5/6/13: Forbes interview with a Kabbage co-founder. It did not sound like they plan on remaining exclusive to the e-commerce side of business lending.

5/3/13: Summary of the ETA Expo. ACH is now the leading platform behind Merchant Cash Advance.

5/2/13: Google Acquires a Stake in Lending Club. This of course begged the question that was asked in BusinessWeek the next day on 5/3/13 in Does Google Want to be a Small Business Lender?

5/2/13: IOU Central smashes last year’s numbers. Publicly traded in Canada, this funder is only picking up steam.

5/1/13: Google Ventures and Peter Thiel invest in On Deck Capital. How’s that for big names?

5/1/13: My Silicon Valley VC prediction comes true with the On Deck and Lending Club announcements.

4/24/13: Business Financial Services Upgrades to $82 million credit facility. Not too shabby

4/24/13: IOU Central renews their credit facility.

4/24/13: Rumors begin to swirl that Amerimerchant has also landed a new credit facility. We have no confirmation on this.

How’s that for a 2 week span and those are just some of the headlines. More news is on the way as we are hearing rumors galore.

Be sure to join the industry chatter about these developments on DailyFunder in these 2 hot threads:
Google investing in the industry
OnDeck vs. Kabbage

I made another prediction back in February 2012 (Does Your Mom Sell Merchant Cash Advance?) in which I said consolidation was inevitable. With all these funders raising massive capital, mergers and acquisitions will be next on the agenda.
