We hit the Inc. 5000 list! (again)

Eagle Business Credit is proud to announce it made number 3514 on the 38th annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

This is the second time the company has received this accolade, an accomplishment only one in four of all Inc. 5000 honorees ever achieve.

Eagle was started in 2013 by CEO, Ian Varley to provide simple funding solutions for small businesses. During that time, it has helped hundreds of companies secure working capital funding to meet their daily cash flow needs.

“The world of business finance is constantly evolving, so we are passionate about providing entrepreneurs with a simple mechanism to get them the money they need to survive and grow. It is a privilege to be recognized as part of the prestigious Inc. 5000 list again and I am so proud of the fantastic team of people working here who helped build the business over the past six years. We would not be the success we are without their dedication and ability to deliver the best client service imaginable.”


Fastest Growing Businesses in America

The Inc. 5000 list is about celebrating business growth, and it is difficult to grow a small or medium sized business. Lack of working capital sets even the strongest of products back. In fact, 82% of failed business cite cash flow as the cause. Business growth requires an injection of cash to your business to cover supplies, technology, personnel, or office space. You’ve heard the phrase ‘You have to spend money to make money.’ Well it’s unfortunately true. A large purchase order may have to be turned down due to supply costs and lengthy credit terms. Will your business be able to take orders from a major retailer that has 30 to 60 to 90 day credit terms? Maybe not.

Purchase Order Finance for Fast Growth

Purchase Order Funding as a business growth solution can help small to medium sized businesses make the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing businesses in America. By having the upfront cash to take on larger orders, your business can continue to make sales and grow! There are no repayments–the money is yours. It makes sense to finance a growing business. You have to. It makes no sense to finance with a lender that has unfair repayment terms, costly interest rates, and a lengthy time to fund.

Flexible Funding

At Eagle, we strive to be nimble, flexible, and efficient with our funding services. Where many lenders waste an entrepreneur’s time with approval decisions, we can provide a quick approval or denial. In fact, we pride ourselves on having the flexibility to fund even the businesses that get turned down at traditional lenders. We streamline the business financing process so that you can focus on your operations while we focus on improving your cash flow.
