Washington D.C. – Today, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Enova International (NYSE: ENVA), a leading financial technology company powered by machine learning and world-class analytics, announced Enova’s sponsorship of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s “America’s Top Small Business” awards and small business summit. The annual event, held in Washington D.C., celebrates the innovation and entrepreneurship of small business owners from across the country.
Enova’s OnDeck lending platform provides much-needed capital to small businesses. Joining the U.S. Chamber to support and celebrate small businesses goes hand in hand with Enova’s commitment to fill the gaps left by traditional lenders and help small businesses grow and thrive.
“We’re honored to partner with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for their flagship event that recognizes small businesses’ vital role in shaping communities across America,” said David Fisher, CEO of Enova. “Many small businesses struggle to obtain needed capital from traditional banks. Through our OnDeck lending platform, Enova is committed to providing the funding businesses need to grow.”
In September, 70 of the most innovative, diverse, and successful small businesses from across the country will be recognized as honorees out of more than 3,000 applications. The highest-scoring business in each of the seven U.S. regions will be named finalists and be in the running for the title of “America’s Top Small Business,” which comes with a $25,000 cash prize.
In October, the thousands of applicants, 70 honorees, and seven finalists will be celebrated at an award ceremony at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's historic headquarters in Washington, D.C. and America’s Top Small Business will be announced. The awards ceremony will follow a day-long summit that will bring together successful entrepreneurs and small business experts for advice, networking opportunities, and practical strategies for business owners.
“The resiliency, ingenuity, and creativity of our nation's small businesses is driving our economy forward. They are the core of our business ecosystem, working every day to provide jobs and services to our communities and push the boundaries of innovation," said Jeanette Mulvey, Vice President and Editor-in-Chief, Small Business Products at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “The Chamber is thrilled to have Enova join us to celebrate their accomplishments and inspire the next generation of America’s entrepreneurs.”
At the summit in October, OnDeck team members will recognize the business named “America's Top Small Business” and discuss challenges and solutions associated with accessing working capital for small businesses.
