Blend is fixing the lending experience for one of the most important purchases people make - their home. Home lending is a $10 trillion vertical that hasn’t kept pace with technology, so we’re bringing banks and their customers the software and tools they deserve.

At Blend, top engineers and designers from Palantir, Google, Stanford, and Caltech have joined forces with industry experts from firms like CoreLogic to disrupt the archaic systems in use today. We're founded by former Palantir engineers and backed by Peter Thiel, Andreessen Horowitz, and other prominent investors.
