Lendio and Supplier Success Partner to Improve Access to Capital for Minorities
Partnership Promotes Awareness for Underserved Small Business Owners
Detroit, MI—September 21st, 2016
Lendio, the nation’s leading marketplace for small business loans, today announced a partnership with Supplier Success, LLC, a Detroit-based company focused on providing working capital solutions, and on improving minority and women business owners’ access to capital.
Through this strategic partnership, Lendio and Supplier Success will provide minority and women business owners access to transparent lending rates and respectful business practices. Lendio recently reported facilitating more than $250 million in funding to more than 10,000 small businesses.
During the economic downturn from 2007 to 2012, minority-owned businesses emerged to help rebuild the American economy. According to the Center for Global Policy Solutions, minority businesses outpaced other businesses by adding 72.3 percent of new jobs during that time. Despite these achievements, minority and women business owners still lack adequate access to capital compared to their counterparts.
“By joining forces with Supplier Success, we’re able to expand our capabilities to provide minority business owners easier access to financing,” said Brock Blake, CEO and co-founder of Lendio. “It’s a pleasure to be working together with Louis Green and a company that shares the same vision in providing opportunity to a country that’s continuing to become more diverse.”
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that by 2043, America’s minority communities will collectively become the majority population. The partnership between Lendio and Supplier Success will use the latest technology to address the disparity in access to capital for minority business owners.
“Lendio’s combination of user-friendly technology and end-to-end service makes them an ideal partner for us, and for the entire diverse business community,” said Louis Green, CEO of Supplier Success. “Minority and women business owners describe access to capital as their number one barrier to growth. We believe this partnership will go a long way toward addressing that issue.”
