MONTREAL, Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - IOU FINANCIAL INC. ("IOU" or "the Company"; TSX-V:IOU), a leading online lender to small businesses (IOUFinancial.com), is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Rubicon Global. IOU joined the RUBICONPro buying program to provide Rubicon's network of independent haulers with fast, convenient and reliable, non-collateral funding solutions.
Where bank loans are not an alternative, an IOU term loan will help Rubicon's haulers invest in equipment to take on more recycling volume and proudly join Rubicon's expansion projects for a more sustainable world. IOU loans will also be provided to Rubicon's base of thousands of small businesses embracing recycling to contribute to a healthy planet. IOU will also promote Rubicon's innovative model to its thousands of existing and past borrowers.
Rubicon provides affordable waste and recycling solutions for businesses seeking a smarter, sustainable alternative, with the aim to eliminate landfills over time. As part of the partnership, IOU will not only work with Rubicon's fleet of independent haulers, but also with Rubicon's small business clients to provide custom working capital solutions.
"IOU is excited to offer funding to Rubicon's haulers and small business clients to promote smart recycling options to businesses nationwide," said Christophe Choquart, IOU's VP of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships.
"This partnership emphasizes IOU Financial and Rubicon's shared values of promoting small business growth through a very smart recycling concept and innovative financing," said Robert Gloer, IOU's President and Chief Operating Officer.
As a key component of IOU's organic growth strategy, strategic partnerships allow IOU's clients to connect with focused service providers such as Rubicon Global, thereby allowing for a unique, cost-efficient, one-stop-shop lending experience.
