Who We Are:
Credibly believes in small and medium-sized businesses and the people who make them grow. We leverage cutting-edge data science, technology, partner relations, and customer support to provide business owners with accelerated access to right-sized capital solutions.

The Company:
Founded in 2010, Credibly has sustained rapid growth and provided over $1B in financing to SMBs, while maintaining a strong emphasis on risk management and a culture of compliance.

In 2017 Credibly became the first company in its space to acquire the servicing rights to a competitor's portfolio ($250MM). Credibly was selected for its proven approach to managing risk. In late 2018, the company completed its first asset-backed securitization and followed with an investment grade senior debt offering in 2019. Credibly's headquarters are in Southfield, Michigan, with offices in New York and Arizona.
