Claim this Profile

SnapCap began in 2012 during the United States' financial crisis. Their main objective as a loan provider is to evaluate the overall success of a business rather than to fixate on an individual's credit score, which is how a lot of banking institutions evaluate eligible loan borrowers. This intention has led SnapCap to be able to lend large amounts of money to businesses all over the country. In this last year, SnapCap lent $115 million in business loans.

Typical Borrowers

The typical borrower takes out a loan anywhere from $10k to $250k for 3 to 12 months. Many borrowers use the funds to expand their business.

Best Uses

Companies can choose to use the loan for things such as payroll, marketing, equipment, expansion, and many other things.

Minimum Requirements

In order to be funded by SnapCap, businesses need to have only been in operation for about six months. Along with that, SnapCap requires a minimum credit score of 500 and a yearly revenue of about $102,000.

In general, this loan is good for...

  • Startups
  • Businesses with no collateral
  • Businesses seeking short-term loans

The Good

  • No required time in business
  • Fast funding
  • Online tools

Online Loan Calculator

The loan calculator that SnapCap offers also gives prospective borrowers the option to adjust your credit score, repayment term, and loan amount. This calculator is incredibly useful for prospective borrowers who are deciding who they would like to borrow from and planning out their estimated monthly budgets.

No Required Time in Business

With SnapCap, businesses can obtain the financing they need to launch new products or services. The SnapCap platform enables businesses to get the capital they need, even when banks turn them down. In contrast to other loans, SnapCap loans do not have an allotted amount of time that companies need to be in business before applying. Even startups can apply.

Fast Funding

While many banks can take weeks to disburse funding, SnapCap offers a turnaround of 48 hours. This short time frame gives businesses the opportunity to receive and implement funds quickly.

The Bad

  • Lacking information
  • Lack of transparency

Unknown Loan Specifics

The website provides very little specific information about the loans that are available, even after you've dug around for a little while. This lack of online information is a major drawback, and will deter many borrowers from applying.

Missing Information

Prospective borrowers should be aware of the information that the SnapCap site is missing so that they can know to ask these questions if they apply for a loan from SnapCap or if they pursue a conversation with the SnapCap team. We do not know if they have prepayment penalties, what the minimum revenue requirement is, or what fees they have.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line for SnapCap is that their interest rates are good enough that it is worth doing some digging. While the website definitely lacks substantial answers to important questions (such as specific requirements for eligible borrowers), companies who are willing to do their research may find that SnapCap is a preferable lender.

Those who need to borrow over $250k would be better off looking at another business loan company.

    The process was easy. My account manager was great when it came to requesting and reviewing the additional info needed for approval

    I felt compelled to write this review because of the service delivery provided to me by Colin at SnapCap and the quick access to the money my business needed for expansion. The loan was deposited into my bank account 3 days after applying. This was my first time working with SnapCap, and I'll be sure to do business with them again if the need arises.
