Funding for entrepreneurs

The recently published 2017 NSBC Survey once again reveals that the biggest obstacle holding a small business back from growing, remains lack of funding and /or insufficient cashflow. This is because traditional finance channels can take months to vet the creditworthiness of a business, often resulting in missed opportunities.
