On Deck, the first technology platform to connect Main Street directly to capital, is pleased to announce its Silver Sponsorship for the upcoming Association for Enterprise Opportunity ‘s (AEO) 20th Annual National Microenterprise Conference in Washington, DC. AEO, a membership organization dedicated to advancing small businesses as a means for job creation and economic development, has chosen “Main Street Matters” as this year’s theme. The theme particularly aligns with On Deck’s goal of serving the Main Street business community more efficiently through the use of technology.
On Deck CEO Mitch Jacobs will be among the conference speakers, which include microenterprise practitioners, funders, policymakers, and industry partners. Mr. Jacobs will be speaking on the panel entitled “Disruptive Innovations: New Thinking on the Impacts of Technology on Business Lending Innovation and Public Policy” about On Deck’s contributions to bridging the gap between availability and access to capital.
