About Us

Helping small businesses better compete with the big guys

Mercantile was founded to increase the purchasing power of small businesses.

While it’s never been easy to launch a business, the last decade has been particularly rough for small businesses. From the internet stealing sales, to private equity buying and consolidating entire verticals, global pandemics, and labor shortages – these are turbulent times for brick and mortar businesses.

Mercantile exists to increase the financial resilience of small businesses. We do this through building tools that help SMBs save time, money, as well as increase their purchasing power, so that they can compete in a world that’s increasingly dominated by the big guys.

Who We Are

The Mercantile founding team comes from small business-owning families and saw first hand the work ethic, expertise, and resilience that being an independent business owner requires. 

We have directly experienced how existing bank offerings for small businesses miss the mark. By creating generic solutions, banks have built products which serve no small business owners particularly well. Mercantile builds products on an industry by industry basis to create offerings that adapt to each vertical.
