Upstart, a small peer-to-peer lending company based in Palo Alto, has just introduced a product to fill a growing but underserved niche: loans for coding boot camps.
 the boot camps are not accredited, and students attending unaccredited schools are not eligible for federal financial aid, including government-backed student loans.
Upstart struck partnerships with 13 coding academies so students could get income-share loans, but many wanted a traditional loan with a fixed rate and shorter term.
The new loans will still be peer-to-peer, meaning borrowers raise money from wealthy investors over Upstart's Internet platform rather than going to a bank or credit union.
Lending Club recently acquired Springstone Financial, which provides traditional loans for private K-12 schools and cosmetic surgery.
Many lenders shy away from making loans to unaccredited vocational schools because they are still considered education loans and subject to different requirements than consumer loans.
Some Dev Bootcamp students have received loans through Lending Club's platform, says Chris Lee, the camp's vice president of finance and operations.
When informed that Lending Club loans aren't supposed to be used for education, Lee said the students may use them to "cover all the other ancillary expenses in their life outside tuition."
The unique symbiotic arrangement has allowed the store to survive, and even expand, despite a business plan and location that to an outsider might look like a longshot.
In a world overwhelmed by smartphone apps and video games, the store sells only board games, card games, miniatures for war gaming and other analog pastimes.
EndGame announced a Kickstarter campaign last month, with a $25,000 goal to help turn the abandoned storefront next door into a cafe.
A curious feature - a pair of mezzanine levels with no stairway access - was a selling point to Lawn and his new partners.
Partitioned game stations were built - sort of a cross between a work bench and a Las Vegas craps table - to hold the terrain, dice and painted figures used in war games such as Warhammer and the Viking game Saga.
The weekly Friday night "Little Generals" program has a summer camp vibe, with a group of teens playing strategy battle games with kids as young as 7.
Longtime board game night regular Eric Vogel, a clinical psychiatrist from Hayward, notes with amusement that a hipster crowd has started to seep in - and has turned him on to the New Parkway movie theater and nearby art galleries.
The EndGame Cafe will serve the public, and the barista will bring coffee and food to game-players at their tables.
EndGame owners say app versions of board games playable on smartphones and tablet computers have helped sales of tabletop games.
 flush from the unprecedented debut of its blockbuster hepatitis C drug, Gilead Sciences watched its stock continue to rise Wednesday, even as a top payer remained opposed to Sovaldi's price.
 Sovaldi's record-breaking performance in the first quarter seems to be quelling investors' fears, but a major pharmacy benefit manager continued to insist that the cost will break the health care system.
The payers we represent have let us know that they are willing to move significant market share to clinically equivalent, more affordable alternatives as the therapy class becomes more competitive in the near future.
