Thrive in the deep end.

Swimming through the SBA lending industry talent pool gap.

The Problem

Supply, Demand, and the Inch-Deep SBA Talent Pool

Meteoric growth in the SBA industry over the past decade has far outstripped the supply of SBA-specialized talent, driving up the cost of employment dramatically, and resulting in a workforce constantly asked to do more with fewer people.

The Numbers

In The Last Decade

%

Between 2011 and 2021, loan volume in the SBA industry’s flagship 7(a) loan program grew an eye-popping 85 percent, from $19.7 Billion to $36.5 Billion.

Lenders made more than $100MM in 2011

On average, SBA lenders are spending 35 percent more for operational employees than they were 5 years ago. The trajectory of SBA employment costs is unsustainable.
