    Save your money first. Pay CASH. Then let your business upgrade as you grow. Unless you get some 50K Commercial Account off the bat!

    To SBA a small business has 50 employees as opposed to a big business like IBM. If anyone wants to get the gob'mint involved things are going to move so slow the dead lice are falling out of their hair.

    And your chances of being approved are slim to none no matter what.

    There is no funding for SBA unless you are disabled or limited minority. pay cash if you can.
