Blend invites companies that service the mortgage industry to sell digital tools--APIs--through its platform.

Founded in 2012 by three Palantir alums, Blend sells white-label mortgage technology to banks and other lenders. By bringing the application process to the cloud and directly connecting to information sources Blend cuts down the time and the expense of originating a mortgage.

Customers include Wells Fargo and U.S. Bank. Overall, the roughly 75 lenders using Blend represent more than 25% of the total U.S. mortgage market and around $60 billion in mortgage applications flowed through their software last year. According to the Urban Institute, $1.8 trillion worth of mortgage were originated in the U.S. in 2017.
