According to Business Insider, Bizfi recently announced the close of a $65 million funding round to ease the alternative lending process for small businesses by providing an aggregating plaform that helps small businesses find the best lending platform for their needs.
Bizfi facilitates some loans, but it also works with alternative lenders such as OnDeck, Funding Circle and Kabbage to pair borrowers with investors.
Some say this indicates alternative business lending is thriving. Unfortunately, most small businesses’ credit needs are not met by traditional lenders. In fact, during the first half of 2014, over half of the small businesses that applied for loans from traditional banks had their applications rejected.
