CAN Capital Crosses $6 Billion in Small Business FundingApril 7, 2016 | By: deBanked Staff
CAN Capital has surpassed the milestone of providing more than $6 billion in working capital to over 70,000 small businesses over 18 years.
Since they have a strong track record of repeat business, the company has actually made over 170,000 individual fundings across restaurants, medical offices, beauty salons and more. Last year, the company introduced two new special small business loans – TrakLoan, which adjusts daily payments with daily card sales and a monthly installment loan product offering a customer longer terms with higher transaction sizes.
The New York-based company was founded in 1998 and uses propriety data-driven models to underwrite loans and advances. CAN Capital is one of the early companies in the space that has seen much overhaul over the past few years with a slew of new companies offering a variety of working capital products distributed through a number of channels. “There has been an evolution both in product and distribution over the years,” said Daniel DeMeo, CEO of CAN Capital. “From a single type of loan and monolithic distribution, we have come to work with big changes in underwriting and decision making,” he said.
It helps to have a favorable economic environment for small businesses to thrive in. The Federal Reserve, in its part has kept borrowing rates unchanged in a decade with only a marginal hike. Small business borrowing also peaked in February touching 17 percent after hitting a two-year low the previous month.
