Welcome to the SBG Newsletter – October 2019
A word from our CEO Jeff Sachs
“October is National Women’s Small Business Month which is dedicated to celebrating the success of women entrepreneurs throughout the country and recognizing their accomplishments. I believe that women-owned ventures will help the economy develop at a fast rate. According to the 2019 State of Women-Owned Business Report from American Express,”Women-owned businesses are driving economic growth in the United States representing 42% of all businesses, employing 9.4 million workers, and generating revenue of $1.9 trillion.”
At SBG Funding, we know that growing a business is the key to success and financing is an integral part of each business’s growth. A recent survey of small to medium business owners found that women were 43% more likely than men to be concerned about limited access to funding. Unlike typical lending institutions, SBG Funding is efficient in helping women entrepreneurs access financing that is not limited by the same time-consuming, stringent regulations as traditional banks. We proudly support women-owned businesses and pledge to help them meet their needs and exceed their goals.”
SBG Featured Woman-Owned Business:
SBG Account Executive Alex Miller recently assisted a woman-owned beauty salon who was in need of some quick funding. The owner was looking for additional capital to be able to stock up on new inventory as the seasons change. SBG Funding was able to get her a custom financing solution to help her business flourish. Now the salon is stocked up and ready for the holiday rush!
Our custom-tailored approach allows business owners to work one on one with a dedicated specialist to figure out a financing option that will give them the optimal return on their investments and keep their businesses thriving. Just like the beauty salon treats each client with the specialized attention they deserve, we take the same approach when dealing with our clients’ financing needs.
