MyCapitalAccess, a provider of finance products and operational services to small businesses nationwide, has announced the launch of the company and the MyCapitalAccess.com platform that connects small businesses with access to capital and the knowledge and resources to more successfully operate and grow their businesses.
MyCapitalAccess was founded by mortgage industry veterans Anthony Chao, chief operating officer of Allied Mortgage; Leo Padron, founder and former CEO of MetWest and previously the top commercial originator in the country; and Art "Ski" Swiatkowski, former vice president of business development for Interbay Funding and trainer for the National Association of Mortgage Bankers (NAMB) in the area of commercial lending. The company was developed with the goal of making capital and business resources accessible to small companies as they weather the current economic downturn and begin to grow again.
“It is no secret that there are a significant number of small companies struggling to survive because they do not have access to the money they need to operate or grow their businesses,” said Swiatkowski. “In acting as an advocate for these companies, MyCapitalAccess assists borrowers in identifying all possible options to satisfy those needs.”
Through the program, borrowers become members of MyCapitalAccess and are guided through the application process. A MyCapitalAccess staff member then determines the best solution for the member’s situation.
“The MyCapitalAccess small business program has proven very valuable to me as I have built my company,” said Walter Ormazabal, president of Pilar Services. “With the company’s assistance in getting a $500,000 line of credit, my air conditioning business has expanded statewide with 45 employees and enabled me to take on larger projects.”
MyCapitalAccess looks to expand its outreach to small businesses through a network of affiliates driven by mortgage, real estate and financial services professionals. By becoming an affiliate, these professionals are able to increase income by facilitating relationships with small companies and selling MyCapitalAccess memberships and services.
“My co-founders and I have all watched mortgage brokers and other professionals suffer through extremely difficult conditions over the past two years,” said Swiatkowski. “With our mortgage backgrounds, it was important to us to help those individuals find alternate sources of revenue.”
To further assist small businesses and provide opportunities for affiliates, MyCapitalAccess is launching a suite of business knowledge services and products aimed at helping the company’s members successfully operate and grow their businesses.
