Fundivo is a loan broker that connects businesses across the country with its network of pre-screened lenders. It was founded in 2013 and is based in New York City. Fundivo's platform turns the business lending on its head by getting lenders to compete for the business of borrowers.
Instead of having to fill in a new application for every lender, Fundivo borrowers just have to fill in a single application form. Fundivo's algorithms then crunch the numbers and match the best loan products available for each applicant. Borrowers can then choose whether to accept the loan offer or try with a different lender. There is no obligation to go with the loan suggested by Fundivo.
Interest rates vary widely depending on the credit, revenue and assets of the business. However, Fundivo works with lenders that provide short to mid-term loans with interest rates ranging from 7% to 25%.
Fundivo does not provide a maximum or minimum loan amount. Lenders assess the eligibility and maximum loan amount of borrowers on a case by case basis. However, Fundivo's lenders only offer short and mid-term loans, which limits the maximum loan a business can afford to the size of its revenue.
Fundivo has lenders that operate in all 50 states.
The application process is fast and easy to navigate. The entire process only takes a few minutes. There is no application fee or obligation to go through with a loan.
Fundivo allows borrowers to apply for a wide selection of lenders without having to waste time searching for lenders and filling numerous application forms. This gives borrowers a chance of pitching their business to more lenders and even gets lenders competing for their business. Once applicants provide the necessary information, Fundivo's loan specialists take over and negotiate with lenders to find the best rate possible. The service is free and there is no commitment to accept a loan.
One caveat, aside from Fundivo's website there is little information available on Fundivo. We tried to contact Fundivo's customer service using the number on their website and our calls were consistently dropped after a few minutes.
