Mitch Jacobs

Nominated for the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards in:

Mitch Jacobs is CEO of On Deck, the technology company dedicated to changing the way small businesses access capital.

Prior to starting On Deck Capital, Jacobs was the CEO and founder of Tranvia, Inc., a credit card processing company, and Transaction Service Providers, Inc., a small business solution that provided stored value services to on and off campus merchants at universities around the country.


Based on twenty years of experience serving the Main Street segment, Jacobs recognized the fundamental problem for business owners and banks: the time involved in applying for and underwriting a loan. Jacobs knew this problem could be solved using technology, and in 2006 launched On Deck. To date, the platform has connected small businesses in every state with over $130 million in capital.

In 2010 he was awarded a prestigous Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for his commitment to increasing the access to capital for Main Street small businesses.
