Building the American Dreams for Minorities, Women and Veteran Business Owners.
New York City, February 19, 2015: Decades ago, minority business owners found it nearly impossible to receive funding for their businesses. Though minority owned businesses have more opportunities to access third party capital, the stigma from decades past lingers like a faint scar. Capstone’s goal is to get more minority participation in the set aside programs by providing much needed access to capital to this diverse group of business owners.
Capstone is here to ease their client’s mind and expedite the healing process by funding contracts and accounts receivable whether the contractor is from the private or public sector. Capstone invests the time, resources and funding essential to your small business in order for you to succeed. We offer several funding options and provide working capital to small businesses and minority-owned businesses looking for the proper funding to help their businesses grow.
Minority Lending Program Success Story: A woman-owned construction firm and their clients were suffering from the negative effects of Hurricane Sandy which, in turn, began to put a strain on their cash flow.
The Problem: The construction firm needed to eliminate spikes in monthly cash flow due to their client’s payments being delayed after invoicing. As the business progressed, they began having larger payrolls and vendor payments to pay out without knowing exactly when the collection would take place to cover their costs.
The Solution: Capstone helped by implementing single invoice factoring (SIF) that allowed for the flexibility to choose which invoices, if any, to factor during the month.
