SBA Small Business Week 2015: The Technology of Lending

Small Business, Technology

Technology continues to change the small business lending landscape by increasing accessibility, competition and transparency among lenders and loan products. Business owners can choose the best fit for their business with a click of a button; financial records are quickly aggregated and a financial health score is generated automatically. But technology also eliminates the subjectivity that a loan officer may provide and opens the door to predatory lending. This event will explore the pros and cons of technology in business lending and the breadth of resources available for small business owners.
