Banking 2.0 – FinovateStartup: Focus on SimpleTuition

FinovatestartuplogoI covered the first Finovate eventorganized by Jim Bruene back in October 2007 (in New York City). The event was such a success (it sold out in only 6 weeks) that Jim decided to organize two more Finovate events in 2008: FinovateStartup & Finovate 08.

I was delighted when Jim invited me to be the official live blogger on NetBanker at FinovateStartup in San Francisco.  Before the event, I plan to blog about most of the 40 startups which will demo their products. My goal is to give you a brief overview of those innovative startups.

SimpleTuition, find student loans – multiple lenders 
SimpletuitionI am in touch with Patrick Kandianis, Co-Founder and EVP, and Chris Stevens, VP Business Development, via Linkedin.

SimpleTuition is not a lender. They have partnered with a range of lenders and financial institutions to share more than 100 different education loan options with borrowers and schools. They work with many colleges and universities to provide custom loan application solutions and support financial aid professionals.

I invite you to check the post on the Student Loans Marketplacesposted by Jim on NetBanker.
