It’s no secret that starting a business is hard. Four in ten small businesses lack access to capital. Fifty-six percent of Black entrepreneurs say a lack of access to capital hinders their ability to grow. Many more face high-interest loan options that threaten them with burdensome debt over the long term.

Financial technology makes it easier to start and build a business. From access to capital, growing a business in today’s digital economy, managing spend, building equity, and in some cases going public, fintech helps every step of the way.
