From start-up to IPO

/ Work / Lending Club

Cementing Lending Club's leadership as the world’s largest marketplace connecting borrowers and investors

Creating Advantage

Lending Club’s S-1 filing garnered more than 60 stories in the first three days

This included all top-tier business/technology outlets

The company’s official IPO resulted in hundreds of articles in the first week of trading and the IPO was touted as the second largest tech IPO of the year

After the IPO, Lending Club was included in the Inc. 500, named a Forbes' America's Most Promising Company three years in a row, a CNBC Disruptor two years in a row, a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, and one of The World’s 10 Most Innovative Companies in Finance by Fast Company

Project Leader

Grayling started working with Lending Club when they and peer-to-peer lending were equally unheard of, and took them all the way to IPO.

The team worked to establish the company and its executives as leaders in their space, with features in top-tier business and technology outlets, speaking opportunities at major conferences, and recognition from well-respected national awards programs.

Along the way we evolved the messaging to reflect the company's shift from growing start-up to thriving, soon-to-be public company.
