Relationship Banker Anthony Correia is very familiar with loans, interest rates, and investor-investee relationships. His work is still in development but he has identified an inefficiency in the space. He is developing a human-centered application to solve this problem and make investing in small businesses and startups easier.
Need, Fit, and Why:
Tony can address this business need because he has a background in relationship banking. Moreover, he is passionate about the space because he has had many conversations with investors over the years.
Angel investment is a $23B industry. If Tony can automate techniques from relationship banking to make the loan / investment process just 1% more efficient and interest rates lower, he has a $230M market.
It’s hard to assess competitors for the idea when the idea is still fairly stealth. We’d imagine Bank of America (for small business loans) and Silicon Valley Bank (for angel investment for startups) might offer status quo solutions, which Tony plans to disrupt.
How Tony used LD Talent:
Tony hired LD Talent engineers Seun, Siva, and Abhay to build a v1 application. He gave them all a 5 star rating.
Here’s what Tony said about the 10 hour free trial and subsequent hours of work with each of them:
“Seun responded to all questions I had within 24 hours. He was knowledgeable and prompt when tasks were assigned. Most important, he asked questions on things that he was unsure about and made suggestions on ways to improve the UX for the app he was building. I would strongly recommend him.”
“Siva worked for me as a front-end engineer for an application my team was developing. Siva also responded to all questions I had within 24 hours. He was knowledgeable and prompt when tasks were assigned. Most important, he took the lead within my small group of engineers and worked well within a group setting. I would strongly recommend him.”
“Abhay worked for me as a back-end engineer for a relationship banking application my team was developing. Abhay responded to all questions I had within 24 hours too! He had a can-do attitude, was very professional, and was knowledgeable and prompt when tasks were assigned. I would strongly recommend him as a lead engineer for any project.”
These comments complement Stanford CS grad, Ashkon Farhangi’s comments on LD Talent’s great ROI earlier this year.
