Financial limitations are often a barrier to starting a business. While many business owners have the entrepreneurial spirit, they don't always have access to startup capital.
In today's business climate, smart entrepreneurs know that financing for a small business is critical and not always readily available. The funding process can be slow when you are working with traditional lenders.
You might have a great idea and a solid business plan, but if you're trying to fund your startup or small business, you probably find it difficult to get financing. Bankers and lenders want personal guarantees and collateral for any loans, leaving those with poor credit in the lurch. Fortunately, there are alternatives available for financing a startup or small business.
