7. Plan Your Budget And Get Funding

New businesses have a hard time getting loans because

they have no track record. And potential lenders want to see some

"skin in the game." They want you to invest some of your own

savings — 25 to 50 percent of the loan you are looking for —

and to tap the resources of friends and relatives with low-cost loans

before you come to their doorstep, hat in hand.

So prepare well. Know how much money do you need, why do you need

it, and how will you be able to pay it back.

James Scott, founder of The CFO.com and a virtual CFO tech start-ups,

suggests ways entrepreneurs can pull in the cash to get their

start-ups

to the next level.

Turn those pockets inside out. "I won’t work with

someone who hasn’t put in his own time and his own money," says

Scott. Investors have the same criteria, so the owner of a new

business

has to be prepared to dig into his own savings, and perhaps even

mortgage

his house or sell some assets to get the business going before he

asks outsiders to provide funding.

Review all of the company’s assets. Some can be used as

capital, and they also might be useful collateral. That is the case

with ExpertPlan, one of Scott’s clients, located at Windsor Corporate

Park. "They have about 100 plans," he says of the 401(k) plans

the company administers. "They’re adding about 10 or 20 a

month."

These plans have value to anyone who might consider purchasing

ExpertPlan,

Scott explains, in the same way that each cable subscriber adds value

to a cable company, and each water customer adds value to a water

company. In the case of ExpertPlan, Scott figures each 401(k) plan

adds $10,000 to the company’s value.

Choose landlords, vendors, and alliance partners

carefully.

"There are landlords in New Jersey no one should work with,"

says Scott. These are the landlords that require personal guarantees

on office leases, and show no inclination to bend with the winds of

economic change. Others will work with tenants, perhaps helping them

through a cash crunch. "You want to do business with good

people,"

says Scott. Establish a network of vendors, customers, business

partners,

and landlords, and do your part by helping them out — perhaps

by sending business their way.

Network like crazy. Let absolutely everyone know you are

working at funding your company. "Tell vendors, customers, your

accountant, everyone in the family. No source should be

overlooked."

Know where to find angels. Many entrepreneurs spend their

days going to meetings and funding fairs to meet angel investors.

A better tactic, says Scott, is to research your company’s industry

so well that you are aware of all of the players. Among them are

recently

retired executives, some of whom may want to stay in the game. With

luck, one might decide to fund your company.

SBA Funds

SBA loan programs enhance your chances of getting money, because they

relieve some of the lender’s risk.

The 7(a) Loan Guaranty Program. If the borrower defaults,

the government makes good the major portion of the loan. The SBA can

guarantee as much as 85 percent on loans of up to $150,000 and 75

percent on loans of more than $100,000. The loans can be five to 10

years for working capital, and up to 25 years for fixed assets such

as real estate or equipment purchase.

SBALowDoc has a simple, one-page SBA application form

and rapid turnaround on approvals for loans up to $150,000. The SBA

will guarantee up to 85 percent of the loan and usually turns the

applications around within 36 hours. Eligible: Start-ups and

businesses

with average annual sales for the past three years not exceeding $5

million and with 100 or fewer employees, including affiliates.

SBAExpress loans let the lender skirt the SBA process.

The SBA will guarantee up 50 percent of the loan, which can be up

to $150,000.

CapLines, an umbrella loan program, provides a 75 percent

guarantee for short-term and seasonal working capital needs: material

and labor needs for a contract, seasonal inventory increases,

financing

for a small general contractor. It can be an advance against accounts

receivable.

SBA 504 loan is for any kind of for-profit small business

that will grow to create jobs. This national program offers a low

down payment (just 10 percent of the total project cost) and a fixed

interest rate, usually below market. It can cover all costs, including

"soft costs" like appraisals and fees.

The 7(M) Microloan Program can be from $100 to $35,000

for capital expenditures and working capital. This is a "last

resort" loan available to nearly any company. They are available

from the Trenton Business Assistance Corporation.

Technical Funding

If you have a technology business, you will be looking

for government grants to develop your technology so that you can limit

your risk. Your best chance at getting "almost free" money

is through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.

It is the federal government’s largest R&D grants program targeted

to the small business community, says Randy Harmon, director

of the Technology Commercialization Center, part of the New Jersey

Small Business Development Center (NJSBDC) of Rutgers Graduate School

of Management.

"The odds for the SBIR grants are very good, one in eight for

Phase I and two in five for Phase II," says Harmon. Under Phase

1 you can get up to $100,000 for `proof of concept’ work. For Phase

II, some agencies go up as high as $750,000 for proof of concept and

developing a prototype. A daylong workshop for writing Phase II grants

is Tuesday, February 5, at Rutgers’ Cook College, for $60.

In contrast, Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants cap

at $500,000, but they often work better for academic researchers who

can’t meet the SBIR requirement that the principal investigator spend

at least 50 percent of his or her time on the grant project. STTR

grants require, nevertheless, that 30 percent of the funds must go

for a collaboration with a nonprofit institution.

Randy Harmon at the TCC has monies under a federal and state program

so that the young high-tech business can:

Use the services of a proposal writing consultant to help

write consultants to help write strong SBIR proposals. "This will

result in stronger business models and business plans for the

companies

that submit proposals and improve the likelihood that the technology

developed under SBIR will be commercialized," Harmon says.

Get technical marketing services to help you get your

grant. Working from the company level up, the consultant will assess

a company’s technologies and core technical competencies and then

identify federal research programs and laboratories that participate

in SBIR and are interested in these areas. Then the consultant will

help the entrepreneur contact the research program.

Working from the government agency "down," the consultant

will try to match any future SBIR grant solicitations with the

technologies

and capabilities of firms registered in this state.

8. Keep Books, Hire a CPA

Early on, Margery S. Davidson, a CPA and owner of

Aberdeen-based

Business Development Team, a consulting business, began to detect

a common thread among those who own businesses. "There so much

they don’t know," she says. "Simple things, like how to keep

books, and what things are tax deductible." She found herself

spending a great deal of time providing tutorials, and then decided

to build a business around teaching accounting basics to new business

owners. Among the most important issues:

Beware the partnership. "When businesses fail, most

of the time it doesn’t even have to do with financials," she says.

"Most times it doesn’t work out because people go into

partnerships."

Whether it’s a spouse, a friend, or a stranger, inviting someone to

share your business dream can be a disaster. The problem, she says,

is simple, and oh-so-human: "I want to take it one way, and you

want to take it another."

Asked how her business has avoided the pitfalls of partnership, she

reveals the second key: "There’s one boss, and that’s me."

Just one person can be in charge, she says. The job can rotate, with

each partner taking the helm for six months or a year, but for each

time period only one person should be making decisions for the

business.

Learn to keep the books. Three to five years after a

business

opens, its owner is working 12-hour days. That, Davidson says, is

no time to learn accounting. By contrast, "new business owners

have more time than money," she says, and need to be spending

some of that time on learning bookkeeping basics. Having seen her

fair share of shoe boxes crammed with a melange of receipts, bills,

and canceled checks, Davidson observes that total ignorance of the

financial side of running a business is rampant. The shoe box

non-filing

system costs all business owners big, she says, particularly at tax

time.

Bookkeeping is especially important for businesses with seasonal dips.

By writing down all expenses in categories and keeping track of what

checks come in when "they can know a bad season is coming,"

Davidson says. Keeping track of financials will also allow busy

entrepreneurs

to see if their businesses are growing from year to year, and by how

much.

Outsource bookkeeping as you grow. Davidson suggests

business

owners do their own bookkeeping in the beginning, and outsource it

as they reach that busy three to five year mark.

Then bring bookkeeping back in house again. When cash

flow grows to a point where there is enough for support staff, it

is time to bring accounting back in-house. Even then, however, she

urges business owners to retain control over bookkeeping functions.

The bookkeeper should not have access to all the company’s funds,

she says, but only to the amount that is required for the month’s

operating expenses.

Take a paycheck. Some business owners put every cent back

into the business, thinking `I’ll take what’s left over.’ Bad idea

on a couple of counts, Davidson says. "What’s left over is

profit,"

she says. "That is what you use when you want to buy a new

computer."

Business owners who do not write themselves a paycheck often end up

resenting their company, she says. "Pay yourself, even if it’s

only $25," she says. "It feels so good to get a paycheck."

9. Choose a Lawyer

What you pay in legal fees depends on whether you

structure

your company as a sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation.

There are tax advantages to each. Consider the type of business you

have, how you will distribute profits, what capital you need, what

liabilities you will have, how many workers you will have, and how

long you expect to operate the business.

In the l980s, many small firms were swept into the prestige of

incorporating

their companies, which added substantial set-up and bookkeeping fees,

and in the end afforded little in the way of practical tax or

liability

protection.

Sole Proprietorship. Just open your door. Attorney’s costs

will be minimal.

Partnership. Consider how partners will divide up profit

and loss, how they will pay salaries, how they will resolve disputes,

who has the authority to spend funds, and who would get what when

the business is sold.

A General Partnership is useful in solving disputes but you are

responsible

for your partner’s business actions. You must file an Assumed Name

Certificate with clerk of the counties in which your partnership

conducts

business.

A Limited Partnership requires filing certificates and affidavits

with the Department of State and publishing a Notice of Formation

in newspapers.

Corporation. The most complicated format incurs the

largest

attorney fees. Whoever owns the most stock controls the corporation.

Decisions made by a board of directors must be recorded, and officers

are liable to stockholders. For a regular corporation, file a

certificate

of corporation with the Department of State. For a Limited Liability

Corporation (LLC), file Articles of Organization.

10. Find a Mentor

You will need somebody you can talk to. Find a business

mentor, preferably not a direct competitor. "Those words of wisdom

will carry you through many hard times," say Spiewak.
