Strapped for Cash? Three Modern Ways To Take Out A Small Business Loan


Source: Entrepreneur

Small businesses can often find themselves strapped for cash. When payroll is due, and accounts receivables are still high, cash is king. Even the most successful small business is susceptible to this type of crunch.

As a four time venture-backed entrepreneur from the Silicon Valley, who has raised a total of $18 million for my tech startups, I’d like to offer some advice to early-stage entrepreneurs in hopes to shed light on alternative avenues to raising money.

Consider diversifying your fundraising strategy by adding non-conventional fundraising options. These days, there are several options for entrepreneurs. Technology and finance are combining to provide creative solutions to help business owners push through monthly bills without the normal headaches.

The reality is new innovative options exist beyond banks for entrepreneurs looking to leverage their strengths while reflecting their modern know-how. Also, the more entrepreneurs diversify financing independence early on, the more power they gain to shape the dynamics with their board later on.

Fintech Lending Throws Banks Another Curveball

Fintech is throwing banks another curveball. Kabbage on Thursday outlined how it has handed over around a fifth of the $5 billion it has lent to small businesses since 2009 at night or over the weekend. It’s one more way technology is upending the industry.

It’s no surprise that small-business owners aren’t nine-to-fivers. Just ensuring the core work gets done typically demands long hours, which leaves them nights and weekends for sorting out the paperwork for finances and the like. That’s often the case for individuals applying for anything from car loans to mortgages, too.

Consumers who rely on payday loans to fill their budget gaps may have a new option to turn to: traditional banks. National banks just received the go-ahead to serve that market from their regulator, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

On Wednesday, Comptroller of the Currency Joseph Otting called for national banks and federal savings associations to step into the short-term, small-dollar installment loan market.

These loans typically range from $300 to $5,000, according to the regulator. And that adds up to about $90 billion in loans taken out every year by millions of U.S. consumers.
