Here’s what happened at the 2019 forum

Thank you for attending the 2019 Small Business Lending Forum

Brought to you by Orion First, the Small Business Lending Forum gathers an elite group of  innovators, thought leaders and veterans of the small business lending industry.


Founded in 2003 as an invite only networking event, the forum has grown into an unmatched opportunity for experts from all corners of the industry to share ideas and best practices. The conference is structured to deliver insight on critical industry issues, with both a keynote presentation and multiple breakout sessions. Held in a forum style, sessions feature industry leaders sharing their perspectives and success stories—providing an executive’s eye view of the small business lending marketplace.  


This year’s forum was hosted once again at the beautiful Hilton Denver Inverness Hotel, which kicked off with an evening reception on Sunday, July 21, followed by a full day of conference events on Monday, July 22.


For those who like to hit the links, the annual Small Business Lending Forum golf tournament on Sunday, July 21 was held onsite at the stunning 18-hole PGA Championship Inverness Golf Club, where we raised over $13K  benefiting YMCA programs.


This year we offered an alternative Sunday event for the 2019 SBLF! Participants joined Keynote Speaker, extreme climber, author and entrepreneur Steve House for a Rocky Mountain Day Hike in the gorgeous mountains surrounding Denver.
