Our Predictions for SMBs and Embedded Lending for 2024

Expect a transformative wave of embedded lending through collaborative B2B partnerships for prosperity and growth.

As we look forward to 2024, we are not just excited about the statistics and data-driven insights that forecast a remarkable surge in embedded lending but also deeply moved by the profound impact this will have on small and medium businesses (SMBs) and the communities they serve.

The numbers speak volumes - a projected total transaction value of US $256,842.4 million in the Alternative Lending segment, with marketplace lending emerging as the dominant force. This isn't just growth; it's a testament to the resilience and potential of SMBs. The alternative lending sector is poised for steady annual growth, with a 2.4% increase (CAGR 2021-2025) on the horizon. These statistics paint a vivid picture of the road ahead, but there's more to this story.

Embedded lending's true power lies in collaboration. B2B partnerships are the driving force behind this transformation, as our data reveals that businesses engaged in such collaborations are 35% more likely to harness the power of embedded lending. It's a testament to the spirit of working together, supporting one another, and fostering innovation.

Payments, mortgage, and accounting firms are not just statistics; they are champions of this cause. Their commitment to a 40% increase in partnerships by 2024 speaks to their dedication to facilitating lending access for SMBs. It's about recognizing the importance of these businesses and standing with them.

Breaking Barriers: Empowering Entrepreneurs and Communities

But beyond the numbers and partnerships, there's a heartfelt narrative - the story of entrepreneurs and business owners who dare to dream. In the ever-evolving SMB landscape, we find ourselves at the cusp of 2024, a year filled with hopes and dreams. It's a year where we envision the thriving of SMBs and the flourishing of minority-owned, women-owned, and first-time businesses.

The heart and soul of our nation's entrepreneurial spirit are deeply embedded in the stories of countless individuals who have come here with dreams of starting their own businesses. These dreams are woven into their family histories, cultural identities, and aspirations for the future. In 2024, we hope to see these dreams transform into tangible legacies that can be shared with future generations.

The United States has always been a land of opportunity, where anyone, regardless of their background, can rise above adversity and achieve success through unwavering determination and relentless hard work. It's a promise that transcends statistics - the enduring American dream.

For minority-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, and first-time entrepreneurs, 2024 holds the promise of breaking down barriers and shattering ceilings. It's a year where we envision more opportunities for these entrepreneurs to access resources, capital, and mentorship. It's about inclusivity and diversity in business, fostering innovation, creativity, and economic growth that benefits everyone.

These entrepreneurs aren't just numbers on a chart; they create spaces for their communities to gather, provide jobs, and strengthen the fabric of the neighborhoods surrounding them. Their success ripples through local economies, fostering growth and revitalizing communities in ways that extend far beyond the balance sheet.
