The event is brought to you by Cambrian Ventures, supporting the next stage of evolution in fintech. At it's core, Cambrian Ventures is a community of 2,000+ product managers, engineers, designers, founders and creators who are excited about using technology to build meaningful products in financial services. https://www.cambrianventures.co/

Speaker #1 - Clement Kao, Product at Blend
Clement will be talking about how Blend is growing their product offering beyond just mortgages to include HELOCs and Home Insurance. Founded in 2012 and 300+ employees strong, Blend is transforming the consumer lending ecosystem. Their white label platform delivers speed and efficiency to the mortgage origination process for some of the nation's largest lenders. Blend is backed by Greylock Partners, Emergence Capital, 8VC, Founders Fund, Andreessen Horowitz, Lightspeed, Nyca, Max Levchin, and other leading venture investors.

Speaker #2 - Paul Tucker, Direct of Biz Ops at Unison
Unison helps consumers buy homes with equity instead of debt. Instead of taking out a loan, Unison helps you with the down payment in exchange for the portion of the homes appreciation. Equity based investments for home owners are relatively new, as such Unison works hard to educate consumers on why their product might be a fit. Paul will be talking about how Unison has learned over time to best communicate the value of their product.

Speaker #3 - Mamta Bhandari, Product at Opendoor
Founded in 2014, Opendoor is one of the earliest and best so called "iBuyers", digital real estate platforms that buy homes directly from consumers in as little as 3 days, instead of using a traditional real estate agent and having to list and show your home. Opendoor pioneered what New York Times called a "fat startup", a company that doesn't shy away from hard, capital intensive problems like buying and selling thousands of homes. Mamta will talk about how Opendoor helps those buying the home navigate the mortgage process. Opendoor is essentially fixing and flipping homes on a massive scale. Their success is predicate on being able to quickly re-sell the homes they buy. When consumers want to buy a home from Opendoor, they often have been fully underwritten for a mortgage, a process which often takes 30+ days. As a result, optimizing the mortgage process for potential purchasers is essential to Opendoor's business.
