The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Minnesota District honored Platinum Bank as Export Lender of the Year and for its commitment to helping small businesses succeed at its Seventh Annual SBA Lenders Conference on September 13, 2019.

“We know that without capital, small businesses struggle to survive,” pointed out SBA Minnesota District Director, Nancy Libersky. “This is why we work so hard to ensure the funding tap doesn’t run dry. But we can’t do it alone. Using SBA loan programs, these organizations are helping small businesses succeed every day and it’s wonderful to be able to honor their efforts supporting our state’s economy.”

The awards are based on each lender’s number of SBA-guaranteed approved loans in Minnesota from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019.
