Our Story

Lendstream’s goal is to leverage our 125+ years of combined experience in commercial financing to create an affordable and reliable funding solution for small business owners. We listen to the objectives of each entrepreneur on a case-by-case basis and recommend the best solution to help them accomplish their goals.
Lendstream was created in 2018 by a team of credit professionals who have been focused on the small business space since 1993. Since that time we have underwritten, acquired and managed over 16,000 small-balance commercial credits, and serviced over 5,000 SBA loans between 7(a), 504, and disaster recovery.
We’re a flat organization where ownership and senior management are one and the same. Everyone works together to swiftly evaluate and process lending opportunities.
