Podcast 312: Dan Snyder of Lower

The home mortgage space has been undergoing a transformation over the past couple of years.

We have seen fintech lenders grabbing market share as they were best suited to grow during the pandemic when everything went virtual.

There has been so much innovation that financing a home is no longer the long and painful process that it historically has been.

Our next guest on the Fintech One•On•One podcast is Dan Snyder. He is the CEO and co-founder of Lower. They have been flying under the radar until recently but they are part of the new breed of fintech lender that is digitally native and growing rapidly.
