About BlueVine

We started with a simple goal: to help small and medium-sized businesses with their everyday funding needs, whether it's to plug unexpected cash flow gaps, or to take on a business opportunity that will help them grow. Our mission is to offer convenient and flexible access to working capital, without lengthy applications, hidden fees or long-term contracts.

Our team reflects our strategy: we move fast, focus on building simple solutions, and push boundaries as we work and learn together.

As a result BlueVine has come a long way in just three years. Our factoring and business line of credit solutions have helped thousands of entrepreneurs. We've provided more than $250 million in working capital funding to date, and we're on track to fund over $500 million in 2017 alone proving that helping others grow their businesses is a good way to grow our business as well.

In addition to the many clients who have joined us on our journey we have also earned the backing of leading investors, including Lightspeed Venture Partners, Menlo Ventures, 83North, Rakuten Fintech Fund and Citi Ventures, the venture investing arm of Citigroup who combined have invested more than $100M to help us achieve our goal together.
