Financing your business

There are many opportunities to finance your business. Some of our partners work directly with Community Development Financial Institutions that offer small business loans from private loan pools. Banks and government organizations offer financing options as well.

The US Small Business Administration is a great resource for business development advice and business financing through the SBA Patriot Express program.

Veteran Business Opportunities 

To honor those men and women who have served in the U.S. military, the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative, known as “VetFran,” was developed to help them transition to civilian life. To date, over 500 franchise companies participate in the program. Their company profiles, as well as the financial incentives they offer to veterans, can be viewed below on this VetFran Directory.
