In commercial real estate, developers have to pinpoint the best financing options to secure for their projects.

Gumption is a Chattanooga startup that tries to streamline those options - an online marketplace that connects potential borrowers and lenders.

So far, Gumption is focused on Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama - with plans to expand to more states here in the Southeast.

This spring, I spoke with Jon Dickerson, Gumption’s co-founder.

Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, Mondays - Thursdays at 3 PM on WUTC.
