Andrew Weissman became an entrepreneur at 18 when he started Prestige Wholesale, a multimillion-dollar global cellular phone distributor. Prestige was ranked on Inc.’s 2014 list of the largest privately held companies in the United States.
As cellular phone technology evolved, Weissman sought new challenges and transitioned into lending in 2015 and began investing his own money in real estate, and in 2020 became a licensed lender.
The investing and real estate arenas led him to found Lightspeed Lending. The company works with real estate investors seeking faster access to capital than conventional lenders offer. Lightspeed has closed millions of dollars in loans since launching its digital platform in 2021.
Weissman believes integrity, determination and drive are among the secrets to success.
“Treat people the way you want to be treated,” he advised in an online interview with the Entrepreneurs Organization of South Florida. “Be a man of integrity. Follow through. Do what you say you’re going to do. If I tell you it’s going to get done on Tuesday, it’s getting done on Tuesday.”
