Which Business Financing Is Right for You?


The ice-age of bank small business lending continues. The New York Fed’s recent survey found that while 58% of small businesses want credit, only 16% received the amount they wanted.  Finding small business financing can be a challenge, but there's good news. You have many options! 

In this webinar, sponsored by Lending Club, we'll discuss a range of credit options small businesses have.  We’ll focus on newer sources of financing, including online credit marketplaces and other online funding, as well as traditional sources like bank lending, credit cards, nonprofit lenders, and more.

Join this presentation to learn about accessing capital through:

Financial statements

  • Traditional bank loans
  • Online credit marketplaces
  • Online short-term funding
  • Other options, including nonprofit micro-lenders, business credit cards, crowdfunding, and more.
