CAN Capital Makes Prized Alliance With Entrepreneur Media IncMay 2, 2016 | By: deBanked Staff
CAN Capital partnered with Entrepreneur.com to create another channel of funding small businesses.
Last month (April 7th), the 18 year old company surpassed $6 billion in small business funding and later this year, it will launch Entrepreneur Lending Powered by CAN Capital to process working capital loans on behalf of the media giant.
“As we get ready to celebrate National Small Business Week, we are excited to work with Entrepreneur Media to continue delivering on our vision of helping small businesses grow and achieve their goals through fast access to funding,” said Daniel DeMeo, CEO of CAN Capital.
The New York-based company which uses propriety data-driven models has made over 170,000 individual fundings including restaurants, medical offices and beauty salons. 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.
This comes in the context of small businesses being underfunded. Business Insider recently reported that “only half of small businesses with $100,000 to $1 million of annual revenue received at least some of the financing they applied for from large banks in late 2015.”
As banks wrestle with tight lending practices, online lenders have filled the gap for providing quick and smaller loans to businesses who need prompt financing.Last modified: May 2, 2016
