AUSTIN, TX – April 08, 2015 – Scott Harmon, the Chief Executive Officer of Noesis
, the tech-enabled lending marketplace for financing energy-saving commercial building improvements, has been selected to speak at LendIt USA 2015 conference. Harmon will sit on the panel titled ‘Energy Platforms Take On Online Lending’, a discussion to highlight the next wave of lending in the real estate sector.
The disruption of lending through technology has experienced an evolution; first across personal lending, then small business, and now it’s taking form in the commercial real estate sector. Noesis is leading the transformation, with their proprietary technology that includes risk analysis, sales automation tools, and an online platform connecting borrowers to lenders, helping to open up the additional, pent-up efficiency retrofit market opportunity.
“Technology in the lending industry continues to shape the way capital is deployed across multiple verticals,” said Scott Harmon, chief executive officer, Noesis. “I hope to shed some light on the massive opportunity in efficiency project financing specifically, and how Noesis is unlocking the market to improve America’s aging infrastructure.”
In this session, Harmon will discuss Noesis’ technology solutions, trends and predications for real estate and renewable energy financing with a focus on the $18 billion efficiency equipment market. Other panelists include: Dan Pillemer, CEO of Kilowatt Financial, Billy Parish, Founder and CEO of Mosaic, John Witchel, Senior Technical Architect of SolarCity, and Graham Smith, Founder of Open Energy Group.
Harmon has over 20 years of senior leadership experience with enterprise software companies. Prior to Noesis, Scott served as CEO of venture-backed AlterPoint, where he helped orchestrate a strategic sale of the business. He also co-founded Motive Communications, which grew to nearly $100 million in revenues and a successful IPO under his leadership. In the early 1990s, he was part of the pioneering team of Tivoli Systems; upon its acquisition by IBM, he served as VP of Marketing and Strategy for the combined business.
LendIt USA has become the largest conference for the global peer-to-peer/online lending industry and brings together innovators in the financial services industries. The panel: Energy Platforms Take On Online Lending, will take place on Wednesday, April 15 in the Astor Ballroom during the Real Estate Crowdfunding track.

Noesis is a specialty Lending Marketplace that helps the commercial building owners increase the value of their buildings. It does this by helping them make informed investment decisions in energy-related equipment, such as LED lights and solar panels, and providing financing to upgrade their buildings, generate additional cash flows and increase property values. Noesis meets the needs of the owners of the 5 to 7 million non-residential buildings in the US through in-house project financing expertise, proprietary project valuation technology and a range of innovative financing vehicles.
Unlike traditional banks and asset-backed equipment finance lenders which focus on the credit score of a business or the value of an asset, the Noesis Platform combines business credit history with business financials, building value and energy savings into a single, combined lending score. The Noesis Project Score unlocks access to capital at more attractive rates and terms for building owners, and provides lower risks and higher returns for financial institutions.
Noesis is used by local and national commercial building owners, as well as over 150 US commercial energy equipment and services companies who use Noesis Platform and Lending Marketplace to help them win more of their project proposals and grow their business.
