Am running a lending platform and needs to generate lead for the borrowers. Any advice on how to go about this?

looking at your website (medifund.co?) you're targeting med students. I'd startup with ivy leagues schools' med programs in your area Then -- go on linkedin and find those - https://www.linkedin.com/title/medical-student Perhaps -- add a feature on the signup that gives them something in return to sharing the website on their facebook/twitter/linkedin friends (there are a few plugins just for that sharing capability) Lastly -- Go to financial aid in universities and see if you can partner up. Go to craigslist and look for med students -- I found 10 in the sfbay area and I'm sure other search string will tield 100s more put your product on product hunt -- medical sections (if there isnt any -- create it) There are many ways to get your target market since it's very focused. Hope this helps! Gil | metadata.io

@gil wow I love your answer. Thanks for the insight and yeah am talking about the website www.medifund.co but am working on a new version that does not involve crowd donations but rather lending/loan. So am looking for ways to get prospective lenders/loans for the students and yeah tying up with university aid division is one way but hope to find more ways too. Thanks
