Becoming bankable is a major milestone for every business, let alone young businesses, and unfortunately there’s not a one size fits all solution for how to get there. To be bankable means that a business is able to receive some form of traditional financing package from a bank. Whether that be a $10,000 operating line of credit or a $200,000 term loan for equipment, to grow and develop your business to the point where it no longer needs debt financing or is able to qualify for some level of bank financing is a huge achievement. And the best part… it’s not impossible to get there. Contrary to popular belief, banks are lending at an all-time high to small businesses, they have more small business focused products than ever, and they want to keep finding small businesses to help scale.
