Funding Options

Funding that fits – Now and in the future

Just as every franchise or independent small business comes in its own particular package, so, too, do its short- and long-term financial goals, requirements and strategies. Our large lending network of third-party capital providers also allows us to help prospective franchisees and business owners with all types of lending options and funding sources.

You might be wondering can I really borrow the money I need? What will the process cost me? Should I use the equity in my home or other assets to get a loan? How long will the application process take? We can help you answer all of these questions and connect you to the right type of financing for your situation. No matter what type of financing you require to invest in a business or grow an existing franchise, Directed Equity can help connect you to qualified lenders for loans ranging from $100,000 to $5 million.


If you have money in a pre-tax retirement account such as a 401(k), IRA, profit-sharing or pension plan, directINVEST will allow you to use funds locked in your retirement plans to capitalize your new business—with no taxes or penalties.

SBA funding
Let Directed Equity help you leverage the popular Small Business Administration (SBA) loan program to maximize financing capabilities while securing the lowest fixed payments possible.

Equipment funding
Upgrade your equipment—and your business—by leasing fixed-rate financing to accommodate the specific cash management needs of your company.

Conventional loans
Combine the benefits of equipment leasing with the ability to include hard costs like leasehold improvements and limited soft costs in a single loan.
