BIZ2CREDIT PARTNERS WITH UNIVISION TO EXPAND ACCESS TO CAPITAL FOR HISPANIC-OWNED BUSINESSES

 

Partnership Connects Small Businesses with Financing Solutions and Resources


NEW YORK – JUNE 11, 2015 – Biz2Credit Inc., the leading online resource for small business finance, has partnered with Univision Enterprises, the products and services division of Univision Communications Inc. (UCI), the leading media company serving Hispanic America, to provide Latino business owners with a broad set of small business solutions.

Latinos are starting businesses at more than twice the start-up rate for all U.S. firms, marking an impressive 43 percent growth since 2007. Despite this growth, it can still be particularly difficult for these businesses to secure capital. To address these challenges, Biz2Credit and Univision have launched a dedicated, bilingual small business platform (www.empresitio.com) to empower Latino business owners. Through the platform, Latino business owners will have access to a broad set of lending products as well as a wealth of educational resources including, periodic research reports on the state of Latino businesses and Biz2Credit’s Small Business Lending Index.

“We are thrilled to partner with Univision and offer their audience financing to expand their businesses,” said Rohit Arora, CEO of Biz2Credit. “Through our automated online loan application platform – available in both Spanish and English – Biz2Credit streamlines the financing process so that business owners can spend more time running their companies and less time trying to figure out financing.”

“This is a very important partnership for us. The community we serve is very entrepreneurial and poised for growth,” said Rick Alessandri, EVP of Enterprise Development, Univision Communications Inc. “This partnership presents a tremendous opportunity for Univision and Biz2Credit to enhance the borrowing experience for our community. Traditionally, the financing landscape has been difficult to navigate but through this new platform our customers will not only find lending options but also learn how to grow their businesses.”

 

This partnership is an extension of the work Univision has been doing to provide Hispanic entrepreneurs with access to the information and tools to succeed. In March, as part of the Company’s Univision Contigo efforts, Univision celebrated Latino entrepreneurship with a month-long effort which included nationwide events, awareness events, boot camps and enhanced tools.
