Levi King
Founder & Executive Chairman, Board of DirectorsNav
Levi King is the Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Nav, a fintech company that matches business owners with their best financing options for free. Raised on a farm in Idaho, King is a self-taught entrepreneur who has started eight different businesses in the last 20 years. During this time, he worked to overcome the same issues faced by most small business owners – access to capital, financing, and marketplace credibility. After figuring out how business credit works, Levi was able to get business loans and financing more than 30 times.

Prior to Nav, he co-founded Lendio, a financing marketplace that links commercial lenders and SMBs. At Lendio, Levi saw too many applicants denied for financing or only get approved for financing they couldn’t afford. He realized someone needed to help business owners become better-qualified applicants, which led him to start Nav.

Levi’s has regular columns in Inc., Entrepreneur and Forbes.
