Occoquan, Virginia - September 2, 2015 - 3 Secrets to Getting Lenders to Chase You, written by Jenn Mathis of One Degree Capital, provides valuable insights on how business owners can make their businesses more attractive to lenders. The eBook, which launches today, is free and available for download at the company’s website,

“Our eBook educates business owners in a format that is easy to read and understand,” explains Jenn Mathis, Founder and Vice President of One Degree Capital and author of the eBook. “Business owners often face an uphill battle when applying for financing. Our goal with this eBook is to help make that process much easier.”

According to the latest research by Biz2Credit, Small business owners face significant challenges when applying for a loan. Large institutional banks approve just 21% of the business credit applications they receive, and these loans are generally reserved for large amounts (average loan is $2 million) to the largest of “small” businesses as defined by the Small Business Administration.

For nano or micro sized businesses (often referred to as “mom and pop” or “owner-operator” businesses), the chances of securing a loan are significantly reduced, making it even more critical for owners to make their business as attractive as possible to lenders.

Rod Loges, One Degree Capital’s Founder and President, is himself an entrepreneur having built and sold two successful companies prior to teaming up with Jenn to start One Degree Capital. “When I started my first tech company it was extremely difficult to obtain a $50,000 loan from a traditional bank,” explains Rod. “In fact it was so difficult it helped plant the seed for the idea behind One Degree Capital. By understanding the best ways to impress lenders, business owners can be better prepared when applying for a loan - whether they apply through companies like One Degree Capital or anywhere else.”
