At Upside Financial, our mission is to make it easy for small community bank lenders to service the PPP loans they’ve issued and make it easy for PPP borrowers to get the full benefit of loan forgiveness.
As PPP borrowers ourselves, we know from our own experience how challenging the process has been and it’s only added to our motivation to create a better solution for small banks and small businesses. Together with our partner Route 66 Ventures, we have a long history of serving small business America and navigating complex federal lending programs.
History has proven over and over again that the right tools and the right team can change everything, and that's what Upside Financial offers PPP lenders and borrowers alike.
