Lendio Announces Strategic Partnership with Group

By Group customers will have access to growth capital through the nation’s largest small business loan marketplace

SILICON SLOPES, Utah – July 15, 2020 – Lendio, the nation’s leading marketplace for small business loans, today announced a partnership with Group, a leading web technology company helping millions of customers around the globe thrive in a connected world, designed to help merchants get access to capital for pandemic-related relief, cash flow management, business expansion and more.

“Small businesses are diverse and there’s not a one-size-fits-all financing solution for them. With access to Lendio’s loan marketplace, our merchants will be able to select from a wide array of loan options from the nation’s top online lenders,” said Chris Ortbals, Chief Product Officer, Group. “We’re committed to helping our small business customers thrive online, and we are pleased to be providing yet another solution to ease the hurdles they face.”

Through the partnership with Lendio, Group will provide its customers with streamlined access to capital to help solve their financial challenges. Lendio will continue facilitating loans through the Paycheck Protection Program to help small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to the recent economic downturn, less than half of small businesses reported that their funding needs were satisfied. According to Fed Small Business’ 2019 Report on Employer Firms, financing shortfalls were most acute for firms seeking $100 to $250K in funding. Lendio’s approach to small business lending helps eliminate common financing challenges by matching business owners with the right lender for their needs.

“Lendio is committed to fueling the American dream for small business owners by making it simpler and quicker to access capital which is more important than ever,” said Brock Blake, CEO and founder of Lendio. “We are excited to partner with Group, which shares our passion for providing small business owners with tools to succeed. Whether it’s addressing cash-flow related issues, helping business owners apply for federal relief funds or assisting those who are poised for growth, Lendio looks forward to helping these merchants innovate and succeed.”
