The Good

  • No Upfront Costs
  • Quick Application Process
  • Product Availability
  • Works with Startups
  • Contact Options
  • Loan Information

No Upfront Costs

It costs $0 to apply with Upwise Capital. Many other lenders have application fees that cost you before you’re even approved, so this is a low-risk and hassle-free way of applying for a loan.

Quick Application Process

Traditional lenders require a long application before approval; Upwise Capital notes that applying for a business loan from a bank takes an average of 26 hours. But with online lenders the experience is much quicker. Upwise Capital boasts a 10-minute application, which lowers the risk associated with applying and being rejected.

Product Availability

Upwise Capital has over 20 options for customers. Many are perfect for small businesses. Here are the product offerings:

  • SBA loans
  • Business term loans
  • Lines of credit
  • Equipment financing
  • Working capital
  • Invoice financing
  • Real estate loans
  • Startup capital
  • Account receivables financing
  • Short term business loans
  • Merchant cash advance

Works with Startups

Many lenders consider startups too risky to finance, but Upwise Capital offers startup capital. Startups can expect high interest rates and will likely need to personally guarantee the loan, but many lenders won’t offer this option.

Contact Options

You can reach Upwise Capital through phone, email, or website form. Many online lenders can be difficult to reach, so having a few channels of communication will help you get a hold of a contact.

Loan Information

Upwise Capital breaks down the pros and cons of several popular loan types and describes the average interest rates, terms, and amounts for each. Many lenders won’t give you this helpful information, so take advantage of the education Upwise Capital provides.

The Bad

  • Time in Business

Time in Business

Upwise Capital was founded in 2019, so it may not have the longstanding track record that older lenders do. However, you may prefer a newer lender because they address the challenges small businesses seeking capital face in a contemporary environment. Upwise Capital seems to be set up for success, but time will tell, and you may prefer to work with an older business.

The Bottom Line

Upwise Capital has created a strong option for small businesses seeking financing. With a high lending cap and several financing choices, it’s likely that you’d find something for your needs through Upwise. You may prefer another company if you’re looking for a lender that’s been in business a long time, but otherwise, it might be worth giving Upwise Capital a shot.

I have to commend my account representative Leo for his can do attitude and pesistance with getting my account funded even while I was in the Emergency Room. He showed concern for my illness throughout this process.I would like to thank Leo and Upwise capital for even "cutting some corners" and listening to my words rather than being document hounds with the ICU monitors being in the background.

I wanted to take this opportunity to share my experience with Upwise Capital. After multiple times to get information, application etc. for our PPP Loan with our (major) bank (which we have done business with for many, many years) - the only thing that was accomplished was frustration and no results. Upwise Capital was recommended by another business associate. After my initial contact with Mr. L - which he answered all my questions and was extremely professional and helpful. He put me in contact with Dave T. Another breath of fresh air - I actually was helped with application, questions and the entire process for this loan. Bottom line - received my approval 2 days after submitting application. I highly recommend Upwise Capital - responsive, professional and beyond helpful!!! Thank you Dave!!! Robin

“Working with Upwise was a breath of fresh air during this crazy time. I tried applying for relief financing with my bank and in 6 weeks, got one email from them saying that they received my application for the PPP loan. At my wits end and not knowing what else to do, I found Upwise in a quick search and was so glad that I did. I was able to get Frank on the line who was very nice, personable and knowledgeable. He had me apply through an easy link, and I was approved and funded in just a few days! I’ll be sure to be calling Frank again with any other financing needs I might have in the future. Thank you Frank and Upwise Capital, you guys ROCK!”

When Craig M. reached out to me, I was currently doing business with another company and explained it to him. He was very insightful and gave me some good actionable advice that I followed through on regarding that deal. Although we had not done any business together Craig continued to follow up with me tracking progress and updates. Once I was ready for more capital with better terms he went to work quickly and efficiently finding me exactly what I, and my business, needed! I would highly recommend this Craig, and this outfit, if this is the product you are looking for!

Joe was a big help in walking me through the process. He took all my phone calls no how late at night to make the process of applying and accepting the offer. I look forward to working with him in the future on other ventures where both he and his firm can be of assistance to me in accessing of other grants or loans being offered by the federal government or others.

Upwise Capital, specifically Craig M, did a terrific job at finding the right financial solutions for us as a Cannabis Business. It is very hard to find reliable, honest and direct providers of financing in this business. I really appreciated how working with them was simple, efficient and we experienced stellar results. Thank you Upwise!

Joe L is a top shelf professional. I landed a large project needing a significant amount of working capital to get the job started.
