The History of Alternative Finance (As Told Through Memes)

| By:

Exactly four years ago, I honored the Thanksgiving holiday by slightly exaggerating the industry’s history in a blog post. And every year around this time since, I’ve reposted it to the home page for all the newbies to enjoy. But in 2016, it just doesn’t seem as applicable. Too many things have changed, especially compared to when I first joined the industry.

The technological experience I remember as an underwriter back in 2006 might as well have been the 1700s. From my perspective, here’s how things have changed:

submitting a funding application

small business finance underwriters

Accelerated aging in the industry

underwriting approvals

10 years in sales

being cool in '06

logging in

smoke break

Wall Street Villains

I don’t know about you, but I am afraid to see where we will be in 2026.

Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
