Frequently, business decision-makers find themselves responsible for managing capital raise initiatives for their company. These leaders often face challenges when it comes to:


  • determining the best lending type for their request
  • finding optimal loan rates & terms
  • building beneficial lender relationships
  • securing funding quickly.

These challenges can be extremely frustrating and time consuming, especially when their business is in dire need of funding. 

The Scenario

Let’s imagine you are a CEO running a mid-sized business. You understand that securing financing is crucial to your company’s growth and overall financial health. However, you unfortunately lack the necessary time it takes to draft a strong company narrative, contact various lenders, access multiple term sheets, and compare loan options. 

Your internal resources are spread thin. Your lender knowledge and business financing expertise falls short from where you would like it to be. Without the proper expertise, it is unlikely that you will obtain your ideal loan options and perfect lender matches. You realize it is imperative to ensure you are receiving the best rates and terms in the mid-market. 


You think to yourself, “I can do my mortgage, my taxes, and my banking online, why can’t I compare and secure my best business financing options online? There has to be a better way.”
