How it works
Access to capital to support and grow your business can be one of the biggest and most complex challenges business owners face. We want to ensure that you feel ready and prepared to apply for a loan. Let us walk you through the basic steps we’ll take together so that you know what to expect.
Step 1: Apply Online
Get a quote without impacting your credit score. Be prepared to share business revenues and expenses. Pulling numbers from your tax returns can help.
Step 2: Review Your Offers
We’ll share offers you can choose from with different term lengths, monthly repayments, and interest rate options. If we have no options for you, we’ll try to refer you to one of our partners or provide other resources.
Step 3: Finalize Your Loan
Once you’ve chosen an offer, we’ll ask for final documentation and verify. We’ll review and come back with a final offer and loan agreement. Upon signing, you’ll get the money you need for your business.
