“As a current investor in Mirador, we know first-hand the strength of their team and power of their platform,” said Robert N.

Mirador’s leading digital lending platform powers a new type of relationship between small businesses and lenders, enabling banks and credit unions to profitably decision loans within 24 hours or less. The Mirador platform is designed to provide a fast, smart and secure cloud-based experience that turns burdensome paperwork into a streamlined, efficient process to the delight of borrowers and lenders, and connects small businesses to the funds they need to grow through its digital lending marketplace. Mirador works with banks, credit unions, and financial institutions across the country.
