LAS VEGAS, March 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Responding to an increasingly challenging lending environment, LendVantage and Larry King have teamed up to give small businesses in the United States access to the capital they need to grow and succeed.
"Small businesses have always been the lifeblood of our economy, and banks aren't giving them access to funding so they can expand," said LendVantage brand ambassador Larry King, the longtime legendary television and radio host. "That's why I am so committed to the service LendVantage is providing. LendVantage gives small businesses a simple, quick way to gain access to critical capital."
Businesses can get pre-approved for up to $250,000 in just minutes. The LendVantage network offers more partners and business finance options to maximize opportunities for business funding. Small businesses can apply for free with no obligation. Many businesses can also qualify for flexible repayment options to fit their unique needs.
LendVantage's lending partners have provided more than $5 billion in financing to more than 100,000 businesses, incredible numbers that show the untapped need of this market.
"Our mission is to empower small businesses and help them secure capital so they can succeed," says Charles Benard, Co-Founder/Managing Partner of LendVantage. "The beauty of our country is that small businesses are resilient. All they need is the opportunity, whether it is for new equipment, additional inventory, more staffing or even a new marketing campaign. LendVantage can provide that opportunity, sometimes within minutes."
"I saw a lot of commercials for LendVantage and thought their services were too good to be true. Our credit was less than perfect and we had a lot of bills starting to pile up. We decided to find out more information and were approved for more than we applied for. It only took a day to apply and the money was in our account the next day. Without LendVantage, our company would have never survived. I am so appreciative that LendVantage was there for us," says Brandy Beck of Build a Roof Claim Services in Hickory, North Carolina.
"LendVantage was quick, thorough and the funds were in my account extremely fast. I was shocked at how quick the turnaround time was," states Robert Carter of Elegance in Design from Phoenix, Arizona.
Small businesses comprise over the 99% of employers in the U.S. and create 75% of the net new jobs to the U.S. economy, according to the Small Business Administration. But since the 2008 financial crisis, small businesses access to capital has been steadily decreasing as traditional banks have tightened their lending requirements to the point where most businesses don't qualify.
Enter LendVantage, which has quickly established itself as the leader in the small business finance industry. Through a simple online or phone application, LendVantage can link business owners to funding partners within minutes.
Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, LendVantage was created to help give small businesses the opportunity to become successful by giving them easier access to capital. Unlike traditional banks, the LendVantage marketplace helps companies capitalize on the strength of their business--offering financial options that focus on cash flow--not just the credit history of business owners.
