**SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT** - OnDeck Capital, Inc.

by Adopt A Highway 3. February 2015 14:26

OnDeck was launched in 2007 to solve a major issue facing small businesses: financing. They combined their passion for Main Street with cutting-edge technology to evaluate businesses based on their actual performance, not personal credit.

That’s enabled them to say “yes” more often and faster than traditional lenders. And that lets owners spend their time where it should be—on growing their business, not seeking financing.

OnDeck’s Principals:

• They believe small businesses are the key to local economic success and deserve an easy and inspiring lending experience.

• They know time is money, and their products and services are designed to keep owners moving at the speed of business.

• They make sure that their loan costs and terms are transparent and understandable.

• They know that having someone to speak with about financing is important, so they have US-based Lending Specialists available to answer any questions.

OnDeck joined the Sponsor A Highway® Program in early 2015 and currently has 8 signs across four different states (New York City, Colorado, Massachusetts, and Texas).

Adopt A Highway Maintenance Corporation would like to welcome OnDeck to the Sponsor A Highway® Program. We’re excited to have you as a partner and look forward to working together to keep the communities clean. Those 8 signs are going to make a huge impact on the environment, while keeping the communities across those 4 states safe and looking beautiful.
