We’re back for the second part of our collaboration with StartupNation. My name is David Haber and I am the co-founder and CEO of Bond Street, a company that provides small business loans. So far, you’ve learned what to use a small business loan for, the difference between debt and equity financing and the basics of a term loan. You’ve also hopefully been able to get a firmer grasp on whether your business is ready to apply for a loan.

Now, it’s time to get down to the actual application process.

In this installment, I will cover:

  • How to prepare for a small business loan
  • How to apply for a small business loan online
  • How to understand your loan offer
  • Common questions
  • How to build financial hygiene to set your business up for future success
  • Examples of how to model out the investment opportunity for your small business

It will alert you to key considerations that could significantly impact your business — financially, and beyond.
