It's almost 2016!
Before we dive headfirst into the new year, we want to take a minute to thank you for supporting us in this last year.
In 2015, we hit some significant milestones, so ringing in the new year is especially sweet for us as we celebrate our achievements over the past 12 months. Last January, we announced that cofounder and former COO Krista Morgan took the helm as CEO. In March, we announced that we hit a $50 million milestone. Througout the year, Krista was published in Forbes, Inc.com, and Fast Company for her thought leadership on building diverse teams, nurturing a successful company culture, and financing a startup the right way. In October, we launched Ex-Factor(featured in the Denver Post), a revolutionary new hybrid ABL/factoring product and hit another milestone—$110 million this time. We also introduced you to the Ex-Traordinary Woman and her exhibitionist ex-husband. We rolled our new borrower technology that makes managing a million dollar line of credit a breeze. At the moment, we’ve funded over $140 million to our borrowers since signing our first client in May 2014, and we welcomed so many new and ex-cellent (see what we did there?) borrowers, investors, and team members this year.
The growth we achieved this year came with a lot of sweat and long hours, laughter, and even a few pies in the face. It wasn’t always easy, but we enjoyed the challenges and are eager to take on 2016. We have so much in the works for this coming year, so stay tuned.
Help us keep on keepin’ on by referring a business that could use a revolving line of credit from P2Binvestor. You can also holler at our sales team for more info. Have you tried our quote calculator? If not, give it a whirl:
We made it into Fast Company! This month, Krista was published in Fast Company for her piece on what to do with all that money you just raised for your startup. Take a read. Like it? Help us out with a share on your social media channel of choice.

Meet our Team: Angela Lindow, A/R & Operations Specialist Angela came to P2Bi after working as a credit analyst for Shamrock Foods’ entire California Division. She is part of the lifeblood of P2Bi—she makes sure that cash is always flowing into our accounts and out to our borrowers. A mom of three, Angela’s kiddos keep her occupied during her off hours. She also enjoys knitting, sewing, and watching geeky TV shows like Doctor Who. She even has the blue telephone box (ahem, TARDIS) proudly displayed on her desk at work. Angela has been with P2Bi since the early days and says that being part of P2Bi’s growth has been incredibly exciting. She can’t wait to see where our great leadership, awesome collaborative culture, and innovative products take us in the future. Fun fact: Angela spent the first decade of her life growing up in Guam and is an aficionado of Spam®.
