Start-Up Financing

Showing your worth to a banker or lender can be difficult when you don't have the years of experience or capital to back you up. At Beacon Funding, we look at details other funding sources don't even consider, so your new business can hit the ground running. See how we can be a unique financing option for your start-up business.


Personal Credit Start-ups

Personal Credit

Your personal pay history is a good indicator of your business' pay practices. Beacon finances a wider credit window with more than 7 out of 10 credit applications approved. So, you can still get approved even if your credit isn’t perfect.

Corporate History Start-up Business

Corporate Pay History

With a short time in business, it's still important for Beacon to see if you pay your business' bills in a consistent, timely fashion. Providing bank and trade references are also helpful. Beacon can pull this information in a flash.

Cash Flow Start-ups

Cash Flow

Your cash flow is the strongest indicator of your business' success. We know you work hard to keep the money coming in, so we recognize that as part of the approval process.

Value of Equipment Start-Up Businesses

Value of Equipment

Beacon cares about more than age for the equipment you choose. We finance new and used for many markets. Our wide knowledge base is advantageous when it comes to credit approval and start-up financing options. We can offer 100% financing, pre-funding, sale-leaseback, extended terms, and private party sellers.  

Transaction Size Start-ups

Transaction Size

Beacon looks at all aspects of the lease, not just the cost of the equipment, such as software, training, supplies, and other soft costs. The quicker you repay your finance agreement and the larger your down payment, the more competitive your monthly payment will be.
