This month marks OnDeck’s 10th anniversary. But when it comes to milestones and metrics, the New York-based small business lender is all about the sevens. As in: $7 billion in capital provided to more than 70,000 customers in 700 different industries in the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
“OnDeck started lending online to small businesses ten years ago with a customer-first philosophy and a relentless commitment to providing capital online with speed, efficiency, and top-quality service to America’s small business owners,” OnDeck CEO Noah Breslow said in a statement. Breslow, who was also OnDeck’s first employee, called small business lending “the hallmark of our business.”
In the company’s statement, OnDeck cited a New York City-area retailer who had benefitted from OnDeck’s services after being turned down for financing by a local bank because their business was “too young.” The retailer turned to OnDeck and was able to secure funding to expand its product line of speciality small batch wines and spirits. He praised the company’s “customer service, speed of capital and personal focus” adding ” that is one of the things that keeps me coming back.”
OnDeck provides small businesses with the financing they need to help grow their enterprises. The company offers term loans of up to $500,000 with rates as low as 9.99% and lines of credit of up to $100,000 with rates as low as 13.99%. The company leverages data aggregation and its proprietary credit scoring methodology – OnDeck Score – to provide credit decisions within minutes and, once approved, borrowers can sign their contracts and receive their money as fast as 24 hours.
