“Zing will be launched live at http://www.ZingFunding.com in October 2008.”
I have yet to see any of the p2p lending companies meet a publicly announced deadline for a launch or major feature. I’d be surprised to see them in October.

We have both observed the same things… Another linked in profile I have access to said August, but I chose the public CEO’s profile.
Time will tell, but given everything what has happened to all the other companies, I would say that legal and regulatory hurdles are quite high.

Loanio is on time isn’t it? They say “Coming Soon,” so technically they have not missed a deadline yet.

They had said in a 2-3 weeks at Finovate in Feb. I am hoping they launch soon.

Well, we thought they would launch last fall. For awhile they were running ads announcing their launch in January.
Zopa took a lot longer than expected to move to the U.S. Prosper has taken longer to launch features than publically announced. It’s hard to meet a deadline, especially in this market.

Has anyone else tried http://www.globefunder.com/ ? They apparently don’t do business in Virginia. When I asked where they do business, the response I got was “We don’t do business in your state.” Gee, thanks!
