Title: Moved into my new Office today
Post by: bdonovan on August 03, 2016, 12:17:58 AM
I moved into my new office today.  Cool new office space- excited about it.   Stepped outside for lunch after settling in the new digs.  And who is right across the road- I mean a few steps away?  None other than Lending Club!!  Yes, I now work right next to the LC office.   Having just got into LendingClub investing and now this - life sure works in funny ways :)

Nice. Assuming your office is somewhere in San Francisco?

That means you're the closest thing we forum members have to a man on the inside!

Yep, in the financial district in San Francisco.  Actually Lending Club (and Prosper which is just 5 blocks away) sit just outside what is typically defined as SF's financial district, which may have some symbolic justification as well.   Makes sense these fin-tech companies are in SF which has loads of both financial and tech going on.

As for a man on the inside lol, I actually thought what the heck, why not wander by their office building.  It is a highly secure building.  Lots of companies in SF doing proprietary, important stuff but the building they are in is much more secure than the others.  It has a sign saying as much.  If you make loans or sell loans, I can see how you may have irate customers - it  probably for the best having that kind of security.   As an FYI, I was not trying to go inside. 

As for the sailboat comment, whoosh- went right buy me - lol

bdonovan,

Now you have to find out where those guys go for lunch, and casually sit at a table near them and listen carefully!  ;)

I would want to hear them over cocktails on the 8th, in a few days.
