The company StreetShares helps connect entrepreneurs (about 60 percent of whom are veterans) with lenders (about 40 percent veterans) to attain loans to help their businesses grow. Applications are quickly processed and lenders place bids (for a $10,000 loan at 8 percent interest, for example). StreetShares then groups the lowest bids into a proposal for the applicant, who can accept or decline.
