The Power of Fintech:
Supporting Small Businesses and Communities in Times of Need
As a technology-focused, trusted community bank and preferred SBA lender, Cross River was one of the first banks in the country offering loans via the PPP to any and all small business across the county, regardless of their preexisting banking relationship. Cutting edge technology, deep relationships and a strong and dedicated team enabled Cross River to offer a streamlined and automated system to enable the processing of applications the moment the SBA opened the Program. As a result, Cross River was able to provide relief to the most vulnerable small businesses and nonprofit organizations in every state.
