Renaud Laplanche Discusses Lending Club Exit and New Venture Upgrade

Business Insider interviewed Renaud Laplanche last week at LendIt Europe; on his exit from Lending Club, Laplanche stated, “It was very, very frustrating. I’m not commenting on the story, but the best way to actually understand what really happened is to read the filings. I think the press made it sound a lot worse, a lot more sensational, than it really was.”; he is taking what he learned from building Lending Club and applying it to his new company Upgrade; Laplanche stated that he hopes to launch a new product each year with possible expansion into mortgages, auto loans, credit cards, home equity and lines of credit.
