Why we do what we do

OnDeck launched in Australia in 2015 to solve a major issue facing small businesses: efficient access to capital. We use cutting-edge technology to evaluate businesses based on their actual performance, not solely business owners' personal credit scores. Ultimately, this makes it possible for us to responsibly expand access to credit. As a result, businesses are able to spend their time where it provides the most benefit-on their customers and on growing, rather than looking for a small business loan.

We understand that financing a small business can be a challenge that requires more time than most small business owners have available. Business operations, accounts receivable, accounting and marketing are all an important part of running a small business - and financing shouldn't slow down your focus on these issues. Instead, it should help a business grow. Financing from OnDeck could help you focus on and grow your business, with loans up to $250,000* available to 700+ different industries.

Moreover, OnDeck offers flexible terms and rates based on your business' performance. Given approvals are not solely based on personal credit history, an OnDeck loan could be an attractive option when compared to a traditional bank loan. Additionally, we offer a quick response to loan applications. We qualify and evaluate business performance based upon a variety of important performance metrics. Moreover, if approved, it is possible to be funded in as fast as one business day.

Since 2007, OnDeck Group has issued over US$13 billion in loans in the US, Canada and Australia for many business needs. These include inventory purchase, equipment acquisition, hiring and general corporate purposes. OnDeck has been trusted by over 110,000 small businesses across the US, Canada and Australia by providing them with a loan to help them build a growing and thriving enterprise.
