Kabbage, Inc., the leading online provider of small businesses financing, announced today that it is the first company to exclusively leverage QuickBooks data to instantly approve and extend funding to small businesses. This is a significant milestone for the company and marks a major expansion to serve all small businesses, regardless of whether they operate online or offline. Kabbage will now be able to provide its award-winning funding solution to more than four million QuickBooks small business customers, across retail, service, and manufacturing industries.
“Small businesses have long struggled with access to capital. As a company dedicated to helping small businesses succeed, we continually explore how to help them obtain fast and accessible funding options,” said Kathy Tsitovich, Director of Business Development for Intuit’s Small Business Group. “We chose to work with Kabbage because we are impressed with the company’s ability to leverage QuickBooks data in real time through our Intuit Partner Platform, and deliver capital to small businesses in just minutes.”

“Small businesses need partners that understand their business and can help them save time and money,” said Marc Gorlin, Co-Founder and Chairman of Kabbage. “We are incredibly proud to be the first to exclusively use QuickBooks data to make real-time decisions and deliver funding to businesses in minutes.
