Scaling Your Business

Funding is often critical for scaling or expanding your business. To get funding from a bank, the first step is to make sure that you’ve got all of the proper documents in order, including your:

  • Personal and Federal Tax Returns for the past 3 years.
  • Personal Cash Flow Statements
  • SBA Personal Financial Statements
  • Bank Statements ( Last 3 months)
  • Credit Report with FICO Scores from Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian. (Note: Minimum FICO Score of 680 is often required)

To minimize the hassle, the consultants at the New Jersey Small Business Development Center (SBDC), can help you get prequalified for a loan and give you direct access to capital from our pool of approved lenders.
