CREDIT TO CAPITAL
As a business owner, at some point you will need access to capital to keep your business momentum growing. You might need to invest in equipment, inventory, or staff to take your business to the next level, but without knowing what lenders or investors are looking for it can be difficult to get the financing you need.
In the Credit to Capital program you will work one-on-one with a business coach to acquire the source of capital that best suits your needs.
SMALL LOANS GROW BUSINESSES
Learn how Rising Tide Entrepreneur Joanna Deleon used two Kiva Zip loans to grow her eco friendly print company, Triple Green Custom Print Developers.
You’ll work with a coach to go over your business goals and create a financial action plan to get your business investment-ready.
You will then gain access to our network of financing partners by creating a profile on our innovative, online loan matching platform: The Capital Exchange. This platform will allow you to identify the products that are the best fit for your needs and to initiate the application process.
Your coach will work with you every step of the way to package and submit all necessary information, answer questions, and help you make the best choices.
We know that starting a business is hard and financially stressful! Our program fees are low, because our goal is to make high-quality services affordable to you. Your first consultation is free. If you decide to move forward we charge an hourly rate of $25 ($10 per hour for Community Business Academy graduates).
Yes. This information is almost always required. However, our partners are typically nonprofit organizations who are dedicated to providing access to capital, even if your situation is particularly challenging.
You’ll work one-on-one with a business coach to go over your credit report line by line. If necessary, the first step may be to pursue a “Credit Builder Loan” that can help boost your credit score within just a few months.
There are many alternatives available to secure financing for your business, including crowd-lending and private investments. The goal of this program is to help you identify your options and select the right product for you.
Rising Tide Capital basically vouched that I would use my loan appropriately and pay it all back. They also helped me through the application process. The loan has been vital to my business. I used it to outfit my own commercial kitchen, including the purchase of appliances.
