NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Credit Junction, a data-driven lending platform that provides working capital to small and midsized businesses, is teaming with the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) to offer its more than 100,000 members and network partners solutions by providing fast, flexible and efficient access to capital from $500,000 to $5 million and educational workshops to grow their businesses.
The SBE Council, a leading advocacy and education organization dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship and strong small business growth, understands the challenges for small business owners in securing loans to grow their businesses. “Access to growth capital remains an enduring challenge for even the most promising businesses,” said Karen Kerrigan, President and CEO, SBE Council. “Our partnership with The Credit Junction will be a critical resource our members who are working hard to effectively compete in the marketplace and reach their growth potential.”
Traditional methods of accessing capital continue to remain difficult for small businesses. Today, the number of traditional financial institutions are at a record low in the US. Unfortunately, this trend and the combined effect of increased regulations have put small business owners at a disadvantage when attempting to secure credit to increase inventory and purchase equipment.
“This strategic alliance will help increase opportunities and awareness of financial solutions to drive small business growth,” commented Sergio Rodriguera Jr., Chief Strategy Officer of The Credit Junction. “Improving credit and expanding new markets will lead to job creation and, ultimately, build better communities.”
In addition, The Credit Junction and SBE Council will conduct a series of educational workshops and training for small business owners starting with a webinar June 21, 2016 at 11am EST.
