WILMINGTON, N.C., Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Live Oak Bank announces it has been named a small business lending partner for Ramp, the finance automation platform and corporate card designed to help businesses spend less.

Live Oak, the nation’s leading Small Business Administration (SBA) lender, will be a new referral channel for Ramp customers who are looking for capital for long-term growth such as acquiring a new business, growing their existing business and real estate purchases.

“We are thrilled to partner with Ramp to deliver SBA loans to a broader base of customers,” said Live Oak Bank President Huntley Garriott. “In addition, this partnership is another step in our embedded banking journey to align with companies who share our belief that business banking can be delivered better and more efficiently to American entrepreneurs.”
