New Businesses, We’re Here With The Flexible Loans You Need

New Businesses, We’re Here With The Flexible Loans You Need
February 18, 2022

With more and more Canadian entrepreneurs opening up new businesses, it is crucial that they have access to adequate funding with flexible payment terms that reflect the barriers that SMBs endure.

That is why we are so pleased to be introducing yet another expansion to our offering, to better serve the small business community. To accommodate the entrepreneurs trying to break into the business world, we have lowered the eligibility criteria to help get them the funding they need, when they need it.

According to a 2020 survey conducted by CBInsights that covered employees and founders from 101 startups analyzed the reasons why those companies failed. The main findings were as follows:

  • 29% failed because they ran out of cash.
  • 23% failed because they didn’t have the proper team.
  • 14% of businesses failed because of poor marketing.

Everyday brings a different challenge and a different opportunity. Whether you need payroll funding, a small business loan, to leverage ecommerce, to fund marketing campaigns, etc., we’ve got you! To find out all the ways you can use our capital solutions check out our use cases

This change in eligibility allows us to fund businesses with 3 months worth of sales and $3,000 in average monthly sales, giving more Canadian entrepreneurs the opportunity to access the funds they need to sustain and grow their business.

The application process is quick and easy, it only requires four simple steps:

  1. Create an account
  2. Tell us about your business
  3. Connect your bank
  4. Get your personal loan offer

Gain simple access to funding and a unique balance between the digital and human experience, merged to give this segment of the economy a combination of the human touch and digital speed.
