The Coronavirus pandemic is inflicting havoc on the economy and businesses of all sizes. President Trump’s CARES Act was supposed to address this issue by providing monetary relief in the form of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), but many under-served businesses are not seeing the fruits of this program. Listen to this podcast as company co-founder Jimmy Flores talks about how his Blue Acorn company has developed a platform that can quickly help small businesses, retail stores, independent contractors, gig workers, and more get access to financial life lines – for free! If you’re frustrated about not getting the money you need to keep you and your company afloat, then this is the podcast for you! Blue Acorn is for you!
If you feel misinformed or frustrated, you’re not alone. When you see huge companies receiving significant money while you see nothing, that’s bound to be annoying! in fact, the first $350B in federal funding was wiped out in ten days by not-so-small businesses, leaving many empty handed. The banks prioritized existing customers and larger loans over the people who needed it most. It wasn’t fair, and as Mr. Flores explains on the podcast, his company was created to help make sure it doesn’t happen again. He even created the OZ Task Force to bring this resource to the Opportunity Zones marketplace as well.
Blue Acorn works by combining many small loans and presenting them to the bank in one lump sum. This ensures banks pay attention to you and fund smaller loans, fast. And it costs nothing to the business owner because the CARES Act mandates that banks pay the fee for the service!
The good news is more money is on the way. However, it’s first come, first served. Blue Acorn is one of the few companies who have painstakingly created a propriety system that actually helps small businesses get their stimulus money in a quick and easy 3-step process that’s easy to understand. Plus it doesn’t matter if you’ve been turned away before or have been previously rejected for funding for whatever reason. And the loans are 100% guaranteed by the SBA (and forgivable if you do it correctly).
Secure your place in line for the next round of CARES Act Funding now! Go to BlueAcorn.co and apply now on their platform to get your COVID-19 Financial Relief! It’ll take you about 5-10 minutes to do so but it’s so obviously worth the time! Need further info? Download their media kit here.
