What is Fundera?About Fundera

Fundera allows you to discover available loan options and help you find the best solution for your business.

What is your App’s name, what do you do, & when did you get published on Intuit’s Apps.com?

Fundera. We’re an automated “loan broker” for small businesses. We’ve been on Apps.com for just under 2 years! We published in March of 2015.

What was the main problem you were trying to solve when you first developed your App?

When a small business owner needs financing, whether for cash flow, growth, or something even more specific like equipment–where do they start their search? How do they know where they qualify? How do they know they’re getting a good deal? Instead of going lender by lender to find the best loan for them, they can start with Fundera and apply to the industry’s leading lenders in one place.

What companies (or users) are the best fit for your App?

Any small business that needs financing. But those with 2+ years in business, a 550+ credit score, and at least $65,000 in annual revenue will a better chance of qualifying with one of our lenders. We do, however, have startup loans.

Our company was founded by Jared Hecht, who formerly founded GroupMe, which was acquired by Skype and subsequently Microsoft in 2011. The rest of our leadership team is made up of experienced technology leaders coming from some of the biggest companies and exits in the industry.

We built an app to make one of the most opaque industries transparent, and our culture is built on the same philosophy. You can learn more about our values and company here.

How is your App different from your competitors?

Fundera doesn’t have any direct competitors, but sometimes people wonder why they shouldn’t go to a direct lender, or even an app like Fundbox or BlueVine first. Short answer is: you can apply to all those apps and lenders on Fundera, so you’ll know who is giving you the best deal.

#QBOchat began in July 2013 with the simple idea to host a weekly Twitter conversation around QuickBooks Online (QBO). We have since grown into a very strong community comprised of a diverse group of users. Our weekly tweet chat is held each Thursday at 3:00PM Eastern. The discussions cover a wide range of topics including QBO’s latest features and updates, business operation tips and apps that integrate with QBO, to name just a few.
