Crossroads Small Business Solutions (CRSBS) was started in 2013 with the goal of providing small business owners with access to much-needed capital through the SBA loan program. Not only did we create a company with a national lending footprint, but also a company that takes a common sense approach to SBA lending. We didn’t stop there! With our primary goal of common sense lending, we also wanted to make the process fast and efficient. In order to do so, we’ve made large investments in state of the art lending technology and recruited the top SBA lending professionals in the industry. Our goal is to help you succeed!
