Can I Get a Loan?

Do you ever wonder:

  • How likely am I to get a business loan?
  • What business financing options make the most sense for me?
  • How can I save time, energy, and hassle in getting money for my business?
  • What is my game plan for getting the capital I need?

If any of those questions have ever popped into mind, consider getting a “Capital Assessment” from Ascent Funding.

What is a Capital Assessment?

It’s a one-on-one discussion and report that produces a roadmap for getting a business loan. It includes:

  • A summary of your unique strengths and weaknesses
  • Short-, mid-, and long-term recommendations for securing capital
  • A loan preparedness action plan for you and your business

How It Works: 3 Simple Steps

1. Gather Key Information.  Take a moment to download and complete the following forms. Estimates are fine and it should only take 10 minutes:

2. Request a Capital Assessment Session.

  • Submit your completed Business and Owner Information Forms below.
  • We will contact you to schedule your in-person, one-on-one session. A typical session is 45 minutes, but they can be as short at 15 minutes depending on the session event venue.
  • Presently,  Capital Assessments are FREE on a limited basis. NOTE: Availability cannot be guaranteed. We will reserve some sessions for minority-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, and businesses that operate in low income neighborhoods.

3. Meet with Us. During the session, you and your advisor will discuss a draft of your Capital Assessment. We’ll answer your questions, discuss your plan and send you a final version of your Capital Assessment soon after the meeting.

Once you submit the necessary information, we will contact you to schedule a session. Requests are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have any questions, please contact Marcy Newton [mnewton@ascent-funding.org].
