San Luis Obispo-based technology company recognized at the Central California Business of the Year Awards
SAN LUIS OBISPO – May 16, 2019 – Land Gorilla, the #1 technology provider of construction loan management software, earned Outstanding Business of the Year at the Central California Business of the Year Awards. The event honored business owners from 14 central coast counties and was hosted by the Central California Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Regional Network in Fresno, CA on May 8.
Land Gorilla pioneered a new way of managing construction loans by creating a cloud-based system that makes lending faster, safer, and more efficient. The technology enables more lenders to successfully offer these loans as they reduce construction non-completion, monitor contractor performance, proactively manage potential portfolio risks, and radically improve the borrower and builder experience.
“Our collaboration with expert consultants through the SBDC has allowed Land Gorilla to fast-track a number of strategic initiatives and prepare us for growth and success,” Land Gorilla CEO Sean Faries said. “Land Gorilla has progressed from a fledgling business to one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States. To be recognized with this award is a true honor.”
The SBDC provides no-cost business resources, consulting and training to business owners to help launch new companies and assist them throughout the entire startup process.
“The past 18 months have been incredibly exciting for our organization, as we have grown into new markets supporting large scaling local businesses such as Land Gorilla,” Director of the SBDC Judy Mahan said. “We have an incredibly powerful team of business advisors who have the expertise to partner with local tech businesses and help them ramp up to become the next generation of anchor companies in our county creating solid head of household jobs.”
