"Our ability to deliver a fast and simple funding solution to the millions of small businesses nationwide, including approval within hours and funding the same day, has solidified OnDeck's leadership position."

The company's industry innovations and rapid growth attracted the nation's leading banks. The current financing round, driven by OnDeck's advanced credit models and strong portfolio performance, has resulted in substantially improved financing terms from prior facilities.
