Origin Partners with Kanmon

October 4, 2023

To offer guiding companies working capital so they can grow their business

BOULDER, COLORADO, October 4th, 2023 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Origin launched its partnership with Kanmon this month, offering flexible financing options to tour, activity, and travel experience providers to finance important projects and help get ready for the busy season.

This partnership will empower tour operators by providing a reliable source of funds to purchase new gear and equipment, hire new employees, market their business, expand to new markets, or cover unexpected expenses.

“Running a tour guiding business is not easy. Operators must jump through regulatory hoops to acquire the correct permits and licenses to operate, pay expensive insurance premiums, market their businesses with ever-rising advertising costs, all while trying to offer their customers the best travel and adventure experiences possible to their customers,” says Alex Fletcher, Founder of Origin. “At Origin, our goal is to streamline these administrative burdens across the board, so when we could partner with Kanmon to offer our users easier access to capital, we jumped right in. We’re excited to help tour operators gain access to flexible financing options so they can continue to invest in their businesses.”

Origin’s goal is simple: Eliminate the burdens of running a guiding business thanks to purpose-built software and help get tour operators back outside doing what they love.

“It can be challenging for small businesses to seamlessly access capital. Even certain established businesses have a tough time finding financing partners that understand an industry and offer transparent products that meet a business owner’s needs,” says Mengxi Lu, Founder of Kanmon, which powers Origin Capital. “We’re excited to be partnering with Origin to augment their deep experience in supporting guiding and experience businesses. Our goal is to be a long-term partner for these businesses—we’re looking forward to being a part of their growth!”

The benefits of this new partnership include:

  • Fast and simple financing. We can fund loans within one day for eligible businesses.
  • Kanmon provides the end-to-end infrastructure and support for the Origin lending program.
  • We will fully integrate the Origin Capital borrower experience into the Origin dashboard so users don’t have to leave the platform.
