LAS VEGAS, Nov. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LendVantage is honored to announce that it has agreed to a sponsorship deal with CNBC's hit television show "Shark Tank." The reality series, which features aspiring entrepreneurs pitching business ideas to potential millionaire investors, has been a ratings bonanza for CNBC, giving the cable network its highest prime-time audience in six years.
LendVantage, which gives small businesses easier access to capital they need to grow, is airing two spots during the 8 p.m. (EST) time slot of Shark Tank, Monday through Friday for the rest of the year. The show, which debuted in 2009, features Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, and real estate magnet Barbara Corcoran among its panel of "sharks." Other sharks have become household names due to the popularity of the show, including Daymond John, Kevin O'Leary, Robert Herjavec and Lori Greiner.
"We are proud to be a presenting sponsor of Shark Tank," said Charles Benard, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of LendVantage. "The show has done such an incredible job of highlighting the boundless creativity and drive of America's entrepreneurs and small businesses. LendVantage is excited to be part of a show that helps small businesses realize their dreams."
Quickly establishing itself as a leader in the small business lending market, LendVantage has been able to link business owners to its broad network of funding partners through a simple online or phone application. Businesses can apply for free with no fees or obligation, and can often get pre-approved for up to $250,000 in minutes.
LendVantage's lending partners have funded more than $5 billion in loans, supported over 720 industries and financed more than 110,000 businesses, incredible numbers that show the untapped need of this market.
"Sometimes, all small businesses need is an opportunity," Benard said. "Whether that involves new equipment, additional inventory, more staffing or even a new marketing campaign, LendVantage is here to provide businesses that lending hand, sometimes within minutes."
Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, LendVantage was created to help small businesses become successful by giving them easier access to capital. For small businesses needing funding to finance growth, traditional banks don't provide a solution. The LendVantage network of funding partners helps companies capitalize on the strength of their business--offering four financial options that reflect the cash flow--not the credit history.
