Nov. 1, 2012 - PRLog -- New York, NY - BoeFly, the online marketplace connecting small businesses seeking financing with more than 2,400 lenders from around the country, has established a rapid response program to support those small business affected by Superstorm Sandy.  

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has worked tirelessly as immediate relief and first response teams have covered the devastated areas in the wake of Sandy.  However, natural disasters like Superstorm Sandy can have enormous extended impact on small businesses, both in a negative and positive way. Countless businesses damaged by the hurricane now face unavoidable and costly repairs. Other businesses instead face a far different challenge:  demand spiked by the hurricane for their products or services require rapid expansion capital.  BoeFly helps solve both challenges by enabling business owners to complete one simple form which is used to efficiently match them with multiple compatible lenders in BoeFly’s 2,400+ strong lender network that are ready to meet the needs of small businesses in the affected areas.  

“Small businesses are naturally resilient in the face of serious challenges like the one presented by Hurricane Sandy,” said Mike Rozman, co-president of BoeFly.  “Business owners must be able to quickly and efficiently access the capital they need to properly get back on their feet or meet unprecedented demand.  The efficiency that BoeFly brings to the commercial lending process is particularly important during crisis periods, when speed is essential.  Providing electronic access to more than 2,400 banks through a single loan request is a capability that provides businesses with their best chance of connecting with the capital they so urgently need.”

“At this critical time in our economy Superstorm Sandy can have a devastating effect on small business,” said Bob Coleman, publisher of the Coleman Report and a small business lending expert.  “I applaud BoeFly for taking the lead to support those small businesses during this challenging time.”

“Conestoga Bank recognizes the serious impact that Hurricane Sandy had on small business owners throughout the East Coast and remains committed to providing lending support in our communities,” said Morgan Johns, SVP of Conestoga Bank's SBA Lending Group. “We support BoeFly in all of their efforts to assist businesses in the wake of this disaster. Conestoga Bank will be waiving all SBA packaging fees on SBA loans associated with the recovery efforts."
