Our Story

After many years working for funders  in the alternative business finance industry, our founder, Shane Mahabir, noticed the lack of a Primary Source that could provide the information Funders need to grow their referral partner base with quality business loan Independent Sales Organizations(ISO) and other alternative finance brokers.

From an ISO Relations department view, it wasn't easy finding out the quality of an ISO(loan broker) and whether they were praised or held accountable for their business practices.

Shane set out to change that. 

Our Vision

We aim to offer transparency on business loan brokers and funders to add value to all stakeholders within the space, which will ultimately improve the merchant experience, with our unique rating system. 

Those companies that earn high ratings will benefit in several ways, such as online reputation, and those that don't will be in a less favorable position. As members rate companies they work with on a monthly basis they will create value that everyone will benefit from.


The unique value in what we offer is providing a centralized place for real time ratings, reviews, and other content provided by only approved, credible industry members. This includes everything from basic contact info of ISOs, ratings, reports of double funding and stacking, employee size, and more. 

Once the ratings reach a critical mass Funder Intel will be the first site you visit to find out information on any company in the space.


Rating ISOs will benefit the whole industry while in the long run improve the overall experience for the merchants. If ISOs and brokers are held to account by a rating system like ours, they will perform better to earn good ratings otherwise it could negatively affect their business. 

Also, ISOs are able to Claim their profile so they can request funders rate them, see ratings and other info plus respond to reviews. This will allow for a dialogue on reviews and their reputation to be mainly in one place for the industry, as opposed to Google, message boards or social media groups where those reviews are done mostly by merchants
