Kabbage CEO Explains The Process

Kabbage isn't stopping though at eBay and Amazon, they have big plans to revolutionize the way businesses are financed altogether:

Chairman Marc Gorlin says the company will take advantage of Intuit’s (INTU) popular accounting software, which has more than 4 million small business users, to analyze sales, payroll, and other data with “eyes wide open.” Many factors, such as a company’s hiring history and the number of vendors it works with, help inform Kabbage’s financing decisions. “It’s not any one data point; it’s tying it all together,” says Gorlin.

Gorlin thinks banks could take advantage of Kabbage’s technology to increase their financing options. “We want to bring automation to the banks,” he says, “whether it’s through a white-label product or they do it through Kabbage.”
