Thanls for all the feed back! I will be following up in the coming days with those whose advice I found particularly of interest.
Hello fellow veteran owned business:
Please be sure (as well as others on this thread) to visit the VeteranOwnedBusiness.com Directory and get your company's free listing. Currently there are over 1,600 veteran, active duty military, reservists and especially service disabled veteran owned businesses listed. The site has had nearly 650,000 pages viewed so far in 2009.
And of course there's no cost to get your business listed!
From one veteran to another, thank you for your service to our country!
You can also try and contact the VA and see if they have recommendations on their website on potential loaners. If you haven't done so already, that may be a good resource for you to start. Another option would be to see if you are able to get another type of loan in order to use for your business, such as a home improvement loan. Often, lenders will lend money even if your credit score is not so perfect but charge you a higher interest rate.
Listing on the Veteran Owned Business directory is also a good idea. Started my veteran owned business by refinancing and using some of that to use as captial.
