We can save your transaction despite the shutdown

Yesterday was another standoff in Washington and the shutdown lives on. Life in the real world continues, although I know many of you have deals that have been impacted and stopped dead in their tracks because of this impasse. That said, Fountainhead is funding SBA 504 loans, well, basically we are. If you go to www.sba.gov, it’s closed. You won’t/can’t get an SBA authorization right now until the government re-opens and even then, it’ll take weeks for them to get through the backlog. But, we’ve already closed unauthorized 504 loans – several times, in fact — meaning there’s no official … Read More

We don’t want small business owners or your CDC to be hurt because our elected officials in DC can’t work together for the moment. We’re funding loans!We can still close on an unauthorized 504 loan. Yes, you really did just read that correctly: an unauthorized 504 loan (meaning it’s a 504 project, but SBA hasn’t approved it “officially” yet, so no SBA Authorization exists yet on the deal). We’ll close those, too, for you and your clients. In fact, we closed … Read More

Yesterday was quite a day in our nation’s capital as we celebrated the life and leadership of George H.W. Bush, our 41st President. I was fortunate to be in Washington, D.C. earlier this week at a conference for small business lenders, and a couple of my friends and I got to go to the Capitol and pay our respects to President Bush, in-person. These keepsakes (front and back are pictured here) were given to visitors in the Rotunda.  THANK YOU, Mr. President. Humanity is better off from your efforts. Great father, doting husband, war hero, smart statesman and patriarch of … Read More
