Description of Services
CRF agrees to provide access to the Service based on your intent to find a commercial lender that may be able to meet your business’s capital needs. CRF utilizes the Connect2Capital application to provide assistance in connecting with CDFIs and other mission driven service partners that are on the Connect2Capital network that desire to provide business capital and/or business guidance resources. Your access to the Service is licensed and not sold. Subject to your compliance with this Agreement, CRF agrees to provide you with access to and use of the Service.
Description of Connect2Capital
Through your use of Connect2Capital, you will be asked a number of questions to attempt to match you with a small business lender. Once you have entered the requested information, Connect2Capital will present you with any financing products that meet your requested criteria. Each participating small business lender has provided information on their financing product, and you may decide whether to send a full application to each participating small business lender by clicking on the link presented to you by that lender. If CRF has any financing products that meet your request criteria, CRF will be listed as a potential match and CRF’s financing products will be listed at the top of any list of potential financing product matches. Connect2Capital does not evaluate whether you are eligible for credit or whether a lender will accept your application, Connect2Capital merely attempts to connect you with a mission-driven lender that offers financing products that fit your requested criteria.
Disclosure of Fees
If you apply to one of the small business lenders presented to you through Connect2Capital and you end up successfully closing a loan with that lender, the lender will pay CRF a fee between 0.00% and 1.0% upon closing. No fee will be payable by you for your use of this Service. CRF will show you all matching products and you are responsible for evaluating and choosing the preferred lender and financing product for your needs. Each lender on Connect2Capital, including CRF, may receive a different fee compared to other lenders, however, the order in which options are presented to you will not reflect those differences.
Disclosure of CRF as lender
In addition to operating Connect2Capital, CRF may also provide loans to small business borrowers and CRF or an affiliate may appear as an option for you if you match with one of the financing products that CRF offers.
Application to lending partner CRF makes no representation or warranties as to how a lending partner may respond to your application, including but not limited to whether a lending partner may accept or deny your application.
Once connected to a lending partner, your application is between you and that lending partner. There are no guarantees whatsoever that you will receive a loan by using this Site or Connect2Capital.
