Happy Terrific Tuesday!
As a lifelong entrepreneur, I am always learning and growing. Also as an entrepreneur, I am always improving my companies.
In doing some research this weekend I came across this information that I thought might be helpful to some of you so I am sharing to help you on your path to success!
From government-backed loans to crowd-funding, today’s small businesses have more financing options than ever before. An enterprising owner can find capital infusions from reliable standbys or innovative new funding sources.
As a small-business owner, you should always stay aware of potential outlets in an uncertain lending climate. If you’re interested in your options “beyond the bank,” consider these alternative financing platforms:
- Web-based crowdfunding campaigns
- Microloans through government or nonprofit micro-finance organizations
- Credit lines from web-based startup lenders
- Equipment-financing incentives from larger companies
Some large companies offer incentives to businesses in the form of commercial funding programs. Even the country’s top public companies—like Fortune 5-ranked Ford Motor Company—offer business-financing incentives. For businesses that purchase dedicated vehicles, Ford is one example of a company offering such programs as flexible commercial retail financing, “red carpet” commercial leases, business lines of credit and leasing options. You can learn more about those options at credit.ford.com.
To Your Success!
