Finding Your Perfect (Business) Match

Connecting Entrepreneurs to Capital

Roughly seven years ago, the economy dipped into a deep recession and the ensuing “credit crunch” made it difficult for many small businesses to secure the capital they needed. Banks effectively closed the door on many small businesses seeking capital that did not fit their “deal” requirements.  Seeing an opportunity, many alternative lenders jumped into the marketplace, willing to provide capital at a time when traditional lenders were reluctant to take on risk. Fast forward to today: the rise of online and marketplace lending means small business owners have access to more options than ever to fund their strategic growth objectives. So what’s the right choice for your business? The answer might not be so simple.
Much like first time home buyers trying to pick the right loan for their mortgage, many business owners are overwhelmed by the countless options available in the capital market.  So many choices can lead to a lot of confusion.  Some lenders will talk to you about APR, others will offer you a short-term cash advance, and more will throw in various hidden fees that may be difficult to discern from all the details –and the list goes on and on.  Taking into consideration all the variables, the real challenge is not merely finding financing or capital resources, but ensuring they are a good fit for both you and your organization’s needs.
