Expanding Lending Platforms

Partnering with banks and credit unions to offer flexible funding options


Catalyst partners with banks, credit unions and other commercial lenders to offer loans and other funding options to small businesses that are not yet qualified for conventional loans. We help banks and credit unions develop risk management strategies that allow them to extend credit to start-ups and small businesses that otherwise wouldn't qualify under current guidelines.
