Loan Technical Help and Resources
Many times the inability to get a loan is not because of the quality of your company or your idea. It may be the way the information is presented or the status of your financial records. These organizations can help you sharpen your pitch, your business plan, or perform calculations to prove that your idea is solid. If you are unsure which is the best for you, contact the SCEDC.
