Access to capital is one of the key fundamental needs for a business to thrive and grow. Capital can give business longevity. We discussed this in a previous post regarding cash flow in your business.
We know it’s important. We desperately seek it. The trouble comes in sorting through all the junk on the interwebs to get to the helpful information. Outside of factoring invoices, guaranteed loan scams, faxed “we get you cash” pages, when the bank says no, where do small business owners and entrepreneurs turn to for capital?

Fortunately there are a number of organizations in Michigan dedicated to assisting business owners in securing capital for their business. We’ll get to that shortly. Before you consider going after capital have you put together a solid business plan for your business? You’ll need it, while if you already have a business and you’re producing company voluntary arrangements but is rejected there are resources that help with this at https://business-insolvency-company.co.uk/what-happens-if-my-cva-is-rejected/.
If you’re an existing business putting together a business plan for the first time, Talan can help you identify areas within your business that need shoring up through our BIZ Strength profile, and it’s FREE.
