Inadequate access to capital is a significant hurdle to overcome. However, early stage businesses face many more challenges and opportunities that require strategic study and solid execution. In addition to helping businesses bridge financing gaps, we provide one-on-one assistance to help business owners navigate these intense periods of decision-making through our Technical Assistance Program. We have a comprehensive referral network of diverse technical assistance providers who specialize in helping businesses understand and prepare for the process of successfully applying for debt financing. We hold educational workshops and sessions on topics and issues that are important to successfully starting and managing a business.
