With 2018 and our third year of operation in Australia nearly over, OnDeck would like to say a big thank you to all our customers.
OnDeck Australia is an SME itself, so we know it’s both exciting and tiring being a small business owner. Just remember, we’re here to support you and your business in your journey to building success.
2018 has been a big year for OnDeck…
- Lead sponsor of the AltFi Australasia Conference in April
- OnDeck Group hit US$10 billion funded across Australia, Canada and US
- Secured a $75 million loan facility from Credit Suisse
- Signed the Code of Lending Practice to improve transparency for small business owners
Now, it’s time to ask, what does this all mean for you as a small business owner and what have we done to support you this year?
Helping you get on with it
Whether it’s the ‘slow no’ from the banks, or you don’t have the time to spend hours on a loan application, it’s no secret that small businesses everywhere often face difficulties when looking for finance.
Our founders knew this all too well, so in 2007, OnDeck capital was launched as a Fintech pioneer aiming to solve this problem, close the small business credit gap and say yes to more small business. With the help of the internet, funding for small business has become more available and faster – helping us say ‘yes’ more often, and helping you get on with what’s important.
Eleven years on and over US$10 billion dollars of global funding later, OnDeck Group has now helped over 80,000 small businesses just like yours, across Australia, Canada and the US.
In Australia alone we’ve helped thousands of small businesses take their business to the next level.
It’s all about compliance and transparency
We know that transparency and financial services should go hand in hand. That’s why, as part of a group of six online lenders, OnDeck signed the Code of Lending Practice in June this year.
What has this meant for you? The Code’s aim is to protect small businesses like yours. It promotes high industry standards of service to customers, provides a benchmark for disclosure of financial information and supports compliance with legal and industry obligations. With the Code in place, the Fintech industry is one step ahead when it comes to governance and supporting Australia’s small business sector.
Whether you’re working, celebrating or just getting on with it at the end of 2018, the team at OnDeck wishes all its customers the best for the holiday season and the New Year.
