On Deck: The leading online small business loan platform
On Deck small business loans is a leading platform for online small business lending, having originated more than $8 billion of loans across 700 industries in the United States, Canada and Australia since 2007. Through its use of proprietary technology and analytics, On Deck assesses the credit-worthiness of small businesses based on actual business performance while taking into account bank statement activity, business and personal credit reports, and government filings.
On Deck also considers tax and census data, along with additional factors such as social and reputational data. In 2017, 2016 and 2015, On Deck originated $2.1 billion, $2.4 billion and 1.9 billion of loans, respectively. On Deck’s 2017, 2016, and 2015 revenue figures of $351 million, $291.3 million and $254.8 million, represented year-over-year growth of 20%, 14% and 61%, respectively.
Can I Get a Small Business Loan?
Through its website, On Deck allows small businesses to apply (24 hours a day – 7 days a week) for a term loan or line of credit. On Deck, using its proprietary technology, often makes a funding decision immediately and transfers funds as quickly as the same day. On Deck offers term loans ranging from $5,000 to $500,000, with maturities of three to thirty-six months, as well as lines of credit ranging from $6,000 to $100,000 that are generally repayable within six months of the most recent draw.
Qualified customers may carry both a term loan and line of credit simultaneously. On Deck also reports back to several business credit bureaus, a process that helps small businesses build their business credit profiles. Because On Deck requires no in-person meetings and collects comprehensive information electronically online, it has enhanced the convenience and efficiency of the small business loan application process.

Small Business Debt Relief
If you are currently burdened by high levels of business debt, the process of pursuing debt settlement may make sense for you and your small business. Debt settlement occurs when a debtor successfully negotiates a payoff amount for less than the total balance owed on a debt. This lower amount is agreed to by the creditor and is fully documented in writing. Though creditors are under no legal obligation to accept debt settlement offers, negotiating and paying lower amounts to settle debts is far more common than many people realize.
