Pylon, an embedded mortgage infrastructure platform, announced on Tuesday that it had raised $3.3 million in seed funding. The round was led by General Catalyst and Y Combinator, with participation from other investors including BoxGroup, Uncorrelated Ventures, and angel investors from Ramp, Blend, Zillow, SoFi, and Figure.
The funding will be used to accelerate Pylon’s product development and recruitment efforts. The company plans to use the funds to build out its mortgage origination platform, as well as to expand its team of engineers, product managers, and sales professionals.
Pylon’s platform allows businesses to embed mortgage lending into their products in weeks instead of the years it would take to build a digital lender from the ground up. The platform provides businesses with access to a wide range of mortgage products, including conventional, FHA, VA, and jumbo loans. Pylon also handles all of the backend processing, including underwriting, closing, and funding.
“We believe that embedded mortgage lending is the future of the mortgage industry,” said Pylon CEO and Co-Founder, Ankur Jain. “With this funding, we are excited to accelerate our mission of making it easy for businesses of all sizes to offer mortgage lending to their customers.”
The embedded mortgage lending market is growing rapidly. According to a recent report by MEF Mortgage, the market is expected to reach $1 trillion in annual originations by 2025. Pylon is well-positioned to capitalize on this growth, as it is the only platform that provides businesses with a comprehensive solution for embedded mortgage lending.
With this funding, Pylon is well-funded to execute on its growth plans and become the leading platform for embedded mortgage lending. The company is poised to disrupt the mortgage industry and make it easier for businesses to offer mortgage lending to their customers.
