The largest city in Orange County, California, Anaheim is home to the Disneyland Resort and Theme Park, the Ducks, and the Angels. The Anaheim Convention Center attracts tens of thousands of people to annual conferences like Vidcon, BlizzCon, and Comic-Con’s famed WonderCon event.
Mice, ducks, and conference enthusiasts aside, Anaheim’s rich history and proximity to Los Angeles has made it the city of choice for small business owners. In addition to thriving tourism and retail industries, the redevelopment of Anaheim’s downtown areas into bustling lifestyle centers has breathed new life into the city’s economy.
But with all this opportunity comes challenges. Many small business owners struggle to find financing in Anaheim. That’s where Darrell Chamness comes in. He’s combining his passion for small business with Lendio’s network of 75+ lenders to help his friends, neighbors, and colleagues find the capital they need to thrive.
