Get started today!

You can get started by completing the form below. This will help us learn about you, your business, and your financing needs. But first, here’s the big picture about what we look for in a loan application:

  • A strong business or idea
  • An entrepreneur with the skills and temperament to succeed
  • A financing request that makes sense given your business and your financial situation  

We’ll use the information you provide in the form below to help determine whether Craft3 financing might be a good fit for you. If it is, you can work with one of our lenders to complete your loan application. Beneath the form you can see an overview of the entire process.

We’ll follow up with you in 2-3 business days. If we’re not able to provide funding, we’ll tell you why and share resources to help you on your business journey. Thanks for considering Craft3 for your financing needs!

Obtaining a business loan is more involved than taking out a home mortgage. At Craft3, we support entrepreneurs every step of the way. Below you can see the main steps in the process.

Introduce Your Business
Complete a brief online form to help us learn about you and your business. We can then determine whether Craft3 financing might be a good fit for you.
Talk with our Lending Team
If it looks like a potential fit, a Craft3 lender will reach out to talk about your intake form and determine whether we can proceed. At this stage, topics of discussion may include: your business plan, uses of funds, projections, and collateral. Put simply, we want to learn who are you, what you want to do with the funds and how will you pay the loan back.
