Company Overview

Ledge is a mobile lending platform that solves the pain of borrowing from family and friends, presenting a new financing alternative for millennials who are opting out of using credit cards and have embraced the sharing economy. Ledge is the only P2P lending platform that works with Venmo, enabling a simple and automated user experience around fundraising, lending, and repayment.


Borrowing through Ledge is as simple as creating a campaign, setting your terms, and sharing it with friends through the apps you use everyday. Friends can pledge money to your campaign without downloading the app, and they are only charged when you reach your campaign goal. Pledges are automatically transferred to your Venmo account once you reach your goal and fund your loan. Ledge keeps track of your loan balance and repayment is automatic, so you can focus on what's important -- being friends.
