    Knowledge is Power: The Sequel

    bowenra Adventurer

      Greetings all. I'm new to the group and want to find out what's going on in general.

      This group is intimately familiar with funding struggles. Although our host for this forum is provided by Bank of America, as we all know, all small business are not created equally in terms of eligibility to obtain capital for the many reasons we have.

      What I'd like to know is, for those businesses and real estate owners who don't have the best credit profile, outside of banks, what are you major sources of money to help you grow and maintain your business? And how do you find them?

      I'm equally interested in finding out where startups find the cash to get off the ground. One thing I've learned is that a lot of businesses either don't know about the various options out there and the many lenders who would love to work with them.

              Greetings. Not knowing if the response was automated, with respect to your

              comment of telling more about my business, would that involve going back in

              and providing that additional specific information in a separate post of

              some sort?
