@sean I knew about OnDeck partnership with JP Morgan but didn’t know about SmartBiz. I checked their website and realise that they have been round since 2009 and have facilitated $1bil in SME loans. What I can’t see through a quick & dirty desktop research, is banks that are US partners. It would be great to find some names.
I am also adding Scotia Bank (@Brett.McDonald in your neighbourhood ) with Kabbage. They plan to offer SmallBiz loans first in Canada and then in Mexico. In a recent Bloomberg article on this deal, I see that Kabbage has already partnerships with Spain’s Banco Santander and the Dutch ING Groep.
