Our path to more equitable lending.

loan software

Lenderfit was born out of years of lending experience, creative support, and external customer discovery within Access Ventures. 

Loan applications are projects. However, by definition, CRMs and Portfolio Management tools are not project management solutions. Seamless client communication and expectation management are key to demystifying your application process while increasing capacity at the same time.

Lenderfit requires minimal effort to create a personalized digital experience for your client and to improve the flow of capital to deserving business owners.

Design Sprint

Time and again, communities across the country all described similar pain points. Small business lenders and small businesses themselves were struggling to connect in multiple ways, with the biggest breakdown occurring in the application phase. We spent a week in 2017 as a team conducting a design sprint to see if we could develop a product to solve for this pain point.

Through the process and practical experience deploying loans, we partnered with the Kauffman Foundation to build a new platform that included automation, transparency, security, and was mobile-friendly to simplify the commercial lending process. That platform product is now an independent fintech company with clients across the country!
