NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. January 1, 2019–Fundation announced that it has recently partnered with Banc of California to launch a digital lending solution, enabling the California-based bank to offer a new, streamlined, end-to-end solution for small businesses seeking business lending or seek a line of credit. The solution enables small businesses to apply for loans and lines of credit through a simple online application at and get the money in less than one business day.

According to the 2018 FDIC Small Business Lending Survey, “Very few banks, large or small, accept small business loan applications online.” According to the Federal Reserve, awareness of online lenders has grown and business owners are increasingly turning to these companies for financing. In 2016, about one in five loan applicants (21 percent) applied for financing from an online lender, up from nearly one in four (24 percent) in 2017.

Sam Graziano, CEO of Fundation, added, “Our platform is designed to provide small businesses with fast and convenient lending without sacrificing the product quality and pricing they expect from their banking partner. Supported with this new feature, Bank of California will be able to offer their local small business customers a market-leading loan program.”
