Funding for whatever your little heart acquires.
It’s no secret that the startup phase can be pretty backbreaking, so skipping it can be smart way to give yourself a leg up in small business. Buying an existing business or franchise enables you to hit the ground running and leverage existing resources to accelerate your growth - which often means you can get farther, faster. See, you’re like Einstein but with much better hair.
For most small business loans, your lender will look at factors like your credit history, time in business, and revenue to determine whether you qualify. If you’re buying a business or franchise, your lender will look at slightly different criteria as a way to make sure that you’re investing in a viable business - and thus will be able to pay back the business acquisition loan.
Be prepared to show records of the business’s financial performance and valuation, as well as a business plan and financial projections. Your lender will also want to talk about any related experience you have that will help you successfully manage and grow the business.
