A common question we get from clients is “How do I get a bank loan to fund my startup?” The default answer is that it probably won’t happen, because most banks just don’t make bank loans to startups. The failure rate is just too high, and startups typically don’t have the assets or revenue stream to back up the loan. That’s why angel investors are so sought after by entrepreneurs.
In our experience, some startup founders do overcome these odds, but you need to be realistic and do your homework. A major issue noticed in our experience is that many Project owners approach Banks or Lenders without a business plan, and asking for money, is a sure way to be rejected and leave a bad first impression.
