As you shop around for small business loans and financial services that suit your needs, keep in mind that this is an important decision. Your relationship with a financial institution that provides your small business with financial services is just as important as the ones you will have with your vendors, suppliers, lawyers, and other business contacts.
Forge a relationship with a financial institution that can meet the needs of your small business, and that has the lending authority that will help you grow. Find out the range of services your financial institution offers tailored to the special needs of small businesses, for example:
- Corporate credit cards or lines of credit
- A variety of loans
- Direct deposit and payroll services
- Federally subsidized loans procured in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration
