Survey: Credit, Loans, and Financing for Professional Service Firms
Take this survey to find out how you stack up against your peers when it comes to readiness to obtain a loan or other form of credit for your business. We'll email you the full results including an analysis of how your business compares to more than 100 other businesses.
The maximum score is 30 points:
• 25-30 points: You should easily be able to obtain a loan from traditional or alternative lenders.
• 18-24 points: You might struggle to get a loan from a traditional source (bank) but should have a number of options to obtain credit with alternative lenders.
• 11-17 points: A bank loan is probably off the table but you might have a shot at credit from an alternative lender.
• less than 15 points: You shouldn't expect to obtain credit from either a traditional or alternative lender. You'll have to look for other financing options (e.g. self funding, friends and family, equity investment).
