Mark Gonzalez, owner of a consulting firm
THE OPPORTUNITY AND THE CHALLENGE
Mark first contacted UCS just as he was breaking through the start-up stage of his business. It’s common for consulting firms to start with just a client or two drawn from their previous in-house experience. The challenge is turning that corner to expand beyond that. Mark had a comprehensive marketing and advertising plan to dramatically expand his business. He just needed the money to fund it.
But like so many relatively new businesses, his consulting firm had a limited financial track record. His UCS account exec, Aaron, explains “Mark’s firm had little sales history, little vendor payment trade line history, and had no prior business financing we could look to in order to gauge whether he’d be a good candidate to finance.”
Aaron and UCS were able to find Mark the working capital he needed to take his business to the next level. With this money to execute his marketing plan, Mark was able increase awareness about his business through social media ads and using professionally-produced video testimonials from his current clients.
His investment in marketing his firm paid off big, which resulted with him obtaining his subsequent rounds of business funding on better terms. Aaron says, “Over time Mark’s bank statements showed the significant growth that our financing helped him achieve. As a result, I was able to get him approved for an early renewal program that was quadruple that amount of his original financing amount. With him showing good payment history and such a drastic increase in revenues, we are continuing to qualify him for more working capital at cheaper rates.”
UCS has had the privilege of working with Mark from the earliest days of his business, helping him access capital to grow his business at a faster pace than he could have done on his own. Mark has come back to UCS multiple times when he needs funding for new initiatives. Aaron loves getting calls from Mark: “I always look forward to hearing how he reinvests profits back into his business to help grow and hire more employees.” said Gower.
