We just returned from a very exciting and busy week in New York City for the LendIt USA 2017 Conference. We were thrilled to be awarded "Top Emerging Real Estate Platform" in a category of stiff competition. PeerStreet stood out in a category of companies that have demonstrated the greatest potential to impact the future of real estate investing. The LendIt Industry Awards took place at the Edison Hotel Ballroom where the organization announced the winners of awards in eighteen categories. See the full list of nominees and winners here.
The LendIt award-winners were determined by 30 industry experts and thought leaders in the alternative lending space. Thank you to LendIt USA for an incredible conference and awards ceremony. We are honored to be a part of such a dynamic and rapidly growing industry.
We had a great team participating in sessions hosted by the industry's leading experts in technology, compliance and real estate in the alternative lending space. Stay tuned for our next post where we will discuss what we learned about the sessions and big trends of the lending industry for 2017. At our booth in the conference exhibit hall, we spoke to hundreds of people about PeerStreet and captured dozens of photos of people in our hats. As usual, they were a big hit.
On Tuesday, our CEO, Brew Johnson, spoke on the "The Next Big Thing in Real Estate Crowdfunding" panel with other top industry leaders in real estate crowdfunding. Since LendIt USA is the World’s Biggest Conference in lending and FinTech, real estate crowdfunding was a hot topic.

Look at for PeerStreet at more industry conference through 2017. We will be attending the following upcoming conferences:
