SYNTAX NYC Has Designs on Growth

Customer Story

Drew Lanza, owner of SYNTAX NYC, a 3D/2D packaging design boutique based in the heart of New York City's Fashion District, needed funding to grow the infrastructure of his company in order to meet the growing needs of his clientele.

How Biz2Credit Helped

For the past 8 years, Lanza had used his own cash and made substantial investments to help grow SYNTAX without the help of traditional banking lending. He had looked for bank financing for years and found that obtaining funding for a small growing business in New York City was difficult period.


As his company approached the age of 8 years, and the needs of the business were growing, he was connected to Biz2Credit through the Small Business Association (SBA) and was introduced to Corey Falkin, Vice President of Business Development.

"Corey has helped and continues to help my business tremendously. Corey did not just help with obtaining credit options but also took the time to truly understand a niche business such as this...I still talk to Corey every couple of weeks to develop additional long term financing strategies." -- Drew Lanza, owner SYNTAX NYC

Drew Lanza attended Rochester Institute of Technology, where he received a BFA. He gained experience in the design industry in NYC, as well as Madrid and Paris. He founded SYNTAX NYC in 1999. The company is seen as a collaborative design boutique has helped create artwork and structural packaging designs for companies such as Estee Lauder, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, DKNY and many others.


Biz2Credit helped SYNTAX NYC secure a $75,000 line of credit from a non-bank lender to help cover both staff expansion costs, as well as marketing efforts.
