Challenges of Unexpected Events

Every business has its challenges. Successful business leaders focus on what they can control: their strategy, growth plans, efficiency and customer satisfaction. But even with all the right pieces in place, unexpected events can happen.

  • Do you have an opportunity to take on an unusually large project or order?
  • Are you planning to open a new location or start a new line of business?
  • Are you facing unplanned or emergency equipment repairs?
  • Has weather or another natural event caused a surprise slowdown or temporary halt in your business?
  • Has a large customer defaulted on their debt to you?

Any of these events could end up a missed opportunity or even worse, cause harm to your business. The solution is fast, flexible bridge financing, when you need it, on terms that work for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many types of unexpected events your company might face that require financing. Examples of some unexpected events include:

  • emergency repairs
  • a surprise change in supply needs
  • a new opportunity with significant upfront costs

A bridge loan is a short-term business loan—typically secured by your company’s assets or other guarantees—that support your financing needs until a more permanent solution is obtained. Bridge loans are great to use when something unexpected comes up, because your company can quickly obtain this type of loan.

When an unexpected situation arises, and your business becomes in need of a quick loan solution, a bridge loan is there to provide immediate capital, “bridging the gap” between the unexpected event and a long-term or permanent solution. Bridge Loans will provide you with the financial resources needed to operate as you seek out a fitting long-term solution.

Accord offers a variety of bridge loans to fit your needs. AccordAccess is a small business loan where you can quickly access up to $75,000 of financing. Refinancing your equipment or using an asset-based loan facility are also great bridge loan solutions.
