Helping Cash strapped Entrepreneurs Succeed, Without Sacrificing Financial Health

Small- to medium-sized enterprises who are starting out (including small businesses, social enterprises and smaller non-profits) often experience cash flow struggles. With small operating budgets, little working capital and limited access to lines of credit from banks, they have fewer resources than their larger counterparts to manage these challenges.

Traditional Approach

Smaller companies often can’t get working capital or lines of credit from the banks, forcing them to manage as best they can on a day-by-day basis using grants, start-up loans and revenue without a long-term financial management plan.

Impact Lab Approach

Use specialized invoice factoring to improve cash flow management to facilitate day-to-day management and enable longer-term financial planning. Tap into efficiencies in the Impact Lab partner group to fund loans to provide working capital that helps them manage more effectively and improves their chances of success.
