Tips for meeting with business lenders

  • Ask questions and take notes

    Keep a notebook to take notes so you can compare your financing options and easily follow up.

  • Don't pressure yourself

    If someone is being pushy, counter with "I'd like to review all of my options and then follow up with you." Apply only when you feel comfortable.

  • Avoid scams

    Research the lender in advance and keep in mind there are typically no up-front application fees for a business loan.
