Wave, innovators in financial services and software for small businesses, and OnDeck® (ONDK), the leader in online lending for small business, today announced a partnership in which Wave will offer OnDeck business loans and lines of credit to its customer base.
The new offering, "Lending by Wave," will be available to Wave customers in the United States and Canada.
Under the partnership, Wave will leverage OnDeck's market-leading online small business lending platform to streamline and automate the business borrowing experience, allowing its customers to access OnDeck loans within the Wave ecosystem.
"Cash flow and access to capital are essential for small businesses to grow, but often hard to get, because traditional financial institutions can't serve this segment effectively. Our partnership with OnDeck reinforces Wave's commitment to improving access to a full scope of small business financial services, and provides small business owners a better option than going to a bank for the funds they need to succeed," said Kirk Simpson , CEO and co-founder of Wave.
"OnDeck is excited to partner with Wave to enable its business owners to increase their access to working capital, saving Wave users valuable time, effort and money as they grow their businesses," said Charlie Deutsch , vice president of platform solutions, OnDeck.

As the leader in online lending for small businesses, OnDeck's advanced lending technology and staunch dedication to customer service has enabled the company to deliver more than $5 billion dollars in capital to over 60,000 businesses across the United States , Canada and Australia .
