FasterCapital Helps Small Businesses in Getting Funded
Lana Albitar
October 30, 2022
Small businesses funding usually revolves around bank loans, SBA loans and small business grants as most small businesses usually have a good track record and significant revenue, which makes most small businesses eligible for loan funding.

Small business funding is one of the services provided through FasterCapital's Raise Capital program. FasterCapital has wide connections with banks and lenders that provide different types of small business loans. FasterCapital helps you get a small business loan for your business through connecting your small business with the right bank or lender and preparing the required documents.

FasterCapital also helps small businesses in getting equity financing from VCs or angel investors. FasterCapital provides support through matching the small business with angel investors and VCs from its huge network of 100K angels and 10K VCs and help with the negotiations with investors.

Some of the approaches we consider to identify the right funding option for the small business are the following:

Assessing the business's financial stability and past track record

Reviewing the business plans and goals

Comparing the funding options against other similar businesses

Asking for feedback and opinions from investors and lenders

FasterCapital: Secure Businesses Loans for your Startup
Sally Yazji
November 16, 2022
Startup business loans are normally used for establishing a business or growing and expanding it. Before applying for a business loan, you need to evaluate the right type of loan for you based on how you will use the funds and the amount of funds you need. Business loans are usually provided through traditional banks, credit unions and lenders. You also need to check your credit score and make sure it aligns with the lenders’ requirements.

Lenders usually check the applicant’s credit score to assess the potential risks. In addition to your credit score, you need to prepare the needed documents. The required documents differ from one lender to another. Some of the lenders ask for sales invoices and some ask for data about your taxes. You need to make sure you have done enough research about the lenders before you apply.

Some loans require certain credit, annual revenue and years in business, such as equipment loans and microloans and some define the usage of the funds like SBA loans. Unlike equity financing, debt capital is a suitable funding option for entrepreneurs that would like to maintain full ownership and control. Debt capital can be secured in the form of loans and startup grants.

FasterCapital helps you get different types of business loans to fund your startup and small business. FasterCapital connects you with the right bank or lenders that provide small business loans and compare different banks and lenders in order to identify the right one. FasterCapital also helps you in prior and post the application process. The team checks your business and credit score and personal guarantee in order to make sure that it fits the lender's requirements. The team also assists you in preparing the documents needed for application.

2 Founders
Team member you need for your startup
Sally Yazji
June 29, 2021
It cannot be stressed enough how your team members - you being one of them - will make or break the business. This human side of the equation is sometimes overlooked and this is what makes it all the more important for you to focus on.

“How do I choose the right team members for my startup?” is a question that every founder should think about seriously enough and then work on continuously. Even if the idea you have is great, even if the market gap is huge, and even if you have the best business plan, it will always boil down to the people who will actually do the tasks that should be done. Not investing enough time, effort, and money into this aspect of the business when starting up is definitely a big mistake many people tend to make while focusing on other seemingly more important aspects.
