For many customers, access to funding early on in their business journey is difficult with traditional banking requirements - some of which require at least 12 months of operation before eligibility applies. Additionally, certain traditional banks’ requirements for obtaining loans - such as established credit scores, business plans, collateral, and revenue - are too high of an entry point for many customers and require them to look elsewhere for financial support. In fact, only 35% of small business owners obtained either a business loan or credit card for their business within the first year of operation to support improvement, expansion, and marketing. However, many more entrepreneurs seek out capital but most have limited knowledge of how to access this necessary financial support., positioned as a marketplace across lenders, provides small businesses with options such as secured loans, business credit cards, and credit-building products tailored to their stage, all within the LegalZoom platform.
