Launched in 2007, OnDeck uses data aggregation and electronic payment technology to evaluate the financial health of small and medium sized businesses and efficiently deliver capital to a market underserved by banks. Through the OnDeck platform, millions of small businesses can obtain affordable loans with a fraction of the time and effort that it takes through traditional channels. The company’s proprietary credit models look deeper into the health of businesses, focusing on overall business performance, rather than the owner’s personal credit history. The OnDeck system also provides a critically needed mechanism for financial institutions and other business service providers to efficiently reach the Main Street small business market.
OnDeck has deployed over $4 billion in capital to tens of thousands of businesses in 700 different industries. The company is growing 18 percent year over year, and was recently named one of the Best Places to Work as part of Glassdoor’s 2016 Employees’ Choice Awards.
