When looking for small business financing, you need to know your options. Small business loans can take on many forms, including short-term and business term loans, business lines of credit, equipment loans, microloans, invoice factoring, merchant cash advance, business credit card and startup loans. Small Business Administration (SBA) loans are also a good option for small businesses that can’t access conventional financing.
Yet, with these options come roadblocks. Lack of collateral or equity in the business, a low credit score, the type of business and size of loan can all be cause for “declined” by traditional lenders. Even the paperwork can be formidable, and turnaround times for funding can be long.
Compare that to small business loans by mission-driven lenders—private institutions dedicated to bringing responsible, affordable lending to all communities. Typically, these are flexible loans for all kinds of small business needs—from supplying working capital for the day-to-day, to funding for equipment and real estate. They’re not only good for business, they’re also good for our communities.
Connect2Capital understands that neighborhoods and community leaders stand ready to support small business owners and help expand their operations and hire more employees—if only they could get financing to support their projects. Enter Connect2Capital.
As a long-time, non-profit lender, Connect2Capital provides small business loans with a purpose—loans that matter. Connect2Capital has a network of dozens of mission-driven lenders, supported hundreds of small businesses nationwide, and provided millions of dollars in small business financing.* Those numbers continue to grow as we expand our partner network of lenders and referral partners, including banks and financial institutions.
Connect2Capital believes that a small business loan begins with a single business, but creates a long-term ripple effect that helps revitalize areas. Small business loans empower small business owners. With these funds, they hire their neighbors for full-time, stable jobs. They order new equipment, build new factories, and expand their services. They grow, prosper, and support a sizable—and local—workforce in cities and towns across the U.S.
Connect2Capital is driven to ethically and responsibly improve our community—not generate profits by charging irresponsible rates and fees. We take the time to find the story behind your business, your passion, and reason for being. We look to connect you with lenders who share your passion. Even if you’re not yet qualified for a loan, we’re here for you. We’ll connect you with resources that can help make you credit worthy and financially savvy—setting the stage for “approved” at a later date.
Connect2Capital is the first online network of its kind to bring mission-driven lenders and referral partners including banks and financial institutions, together to help small businesses find the funding they need to flourish today and tomorrow.
