We have brought together the brightest minds in business with one goal—make small business loans simple. Each day our team makes a positive impact on the lives of small business owners in America. The lives we help are moms, dads, sons, daughters, friends, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents all with the goal of helping them build their dream, their business.
My passion is to make small business lending simple for the 30 million Main Street businesses across the USA. Thankfully, we’re growing rapidly by helping over 100,000 small businesses each year get matched to a lender to start or grow their business. Successful companies start with passion to solve a major problem, a great team, and a superior company culture. While business accomplishments can be a nice ego boost, my most important accomplishments come from being a husband and father of three.
