I tried posting earlier, so if somehow this is a double post I apologize.
I'm trying to find and learn more about start up capital. My company focuses on working capital and cash funding for small businesses, but only for established companies and owners. We'll consider funding a company after a few months, but we don't do true start up.
We do get a lot of applicants through our marketing, though, and some are looking for start up money -- often for franchise fees, materials, advertising, etc. I'm hoping to find out where I can redirect them, or who's actually doing this type of lending.
Any suggestions are welcome, and state-specific suggestions are particularly useful. We direct mail market across the country, so reputable and proven sources would be great.
