There is a lot of information out there about small business lending and how to get your business funded. A common belief is that there has been a crackdown on funding because of our economy. Now you may find this to be true if you represent yourself at a local banking center. But what we are excited about here at BDN is that we can offer our lending expertise and connections with lenders who are ready to finance a business.
We believe in the process of business development (see previous posts on the different stages) and the importance of a solid business plan. Some resources will tell you that the business plan is important, others that it is not crucial to your success. Even if you do not need small business lending, start strong with clear plan. We offer consulting services to review/edit your plan or we can create one for you.
The business plan is the gatekeeper for getting business funding. Part of using BDN as a consultant is walking with you and connecting you with a lender. It’s our job, and we love what we do.
What about you? What has your experience been with business lending?
