Startup loans can come in many shapes and forms: Some may be traditional term loans, some may be business credit cards, and some may be SBA loans. However, they are all designed to help fund a new venture for entrepreneurs who are willing to use debt as a source of capital. Deciding on a startup loan is one of the most important early business decisions you can make, so finding the right loan terms is key.
Lenders are particularly careful of risk when it comes to startup loans – they are taking a chance on a business that doesn't exist yet. As a result, collateral – often personal collateral like your house or car – is typically required. Lenders also prefer to see a credit score of at least 680, as well as your tax returns and recent income. Additionally, traditional lenders will expect a full business plan and careful revenue forecasts for the next several years to show that you have the acumen and skills to create a successful company.
Startup loans interest rates can vary greatly based on individual circumstances and the type of loan that you settle on. Average rates tend to range between 7 and 30 percent, and may be higher than other types of business loans to help offset the greater risk. Loans specifically designed to help new entrepreneur and stimulate the economy, like certain SBA loans, tend to have the best terms.
