LoanWell is an automated loan origination and portfolio management solution for community lenders — banks, credit unions, CDFIs, loan funds, and foundations. They've built the "Squarespace for Lenders", a white labelled platform with end-to-end functionality for application intake, origination, task management, underwriting, closing, servicing, and reporting. LoanWell automates the back office so the community lenders can do what they do best — fund our local small businesses and economies.
