Gumption is an innovative, early-stage venture-backed startup that's revolutionizing the commercial real estate lending landscape. We're departing from the conventional lending model where borrowers approach lenders directly. Instead, we've developed a cutting-edge matchmaking platform. Our platform connects borrowers with a network of lenders, ensuring they secure the best terms and close deals on-time.
The idea for Gumption came from a personal problem our co-founder, Ward, faced while running his own commercial real estate development company. Ward has successfully developed many beautiful retail, hospitality, and multifamily projects throughout the Southeast. However, he hit a point where it was really difficult to scale because the process of securing debt financing became too tedious.
At Gumption, our culture is all about being result-focused and relentlessly determined. We're not your typical 9-to-5 crew. We're a dynamic trio - an MIT grad, a coding wizard, and a seasoned CRE pro - and we're on a mission to change the game in commercial real estate lending. We're committed to doing whatever it takes to succeed. This means thinking outside the box, embracing challenges, and pushing boundaries. Our culture isn't about red tape or hierarchy – it's about achieving our vision and enjoying every step of the journey. We also have a gym, sauna, and cold plunge right next to the office to keep employees healthy and energized.
Our mission is to empower CRE professionals to build and improve communities
