The SMB Process
SMB was founded with the purpose of providing entrepreneurs and businesses, in numerous industries, with a transparent and effective advisory tool to navigate through the challenges of a capital raise. Our advisors invest countless hours to work with clients to develop a strategy and process that best fits the particular situations of our clients. For us, our process all starts with our relationships. Our professionals have cultivated long-standing and deep relationships with partners and clients. We work with an exclusive yet robust channel of financing and lending relationships. Most debt raising processes are filled with gaps, friction points, and time absorbing tasks. For potential borrowers, the process can be a burden on the company. For lenders, there are risks in the amount of time and effort spent on any one transaction that may or may not lead to a closing. There’s an opportunity risk for one and all involved. Our methodology of “Efficiency by way of transparency” allows for a smooth financing process that attacks and removes all these gaps and friction points. Our approach and goals are to provide a thoughtful process to all parties involved in financing.
