Start Up Companies:

Loans to start ups and to finance the purchase of existing businesses typically carry a higher degree of risk. The Bank of Akron, in partnership with the Small Business Administration (SBA) can offer a variety of guaranty programs for these transactions. Information and assistance with business plans and projections is available from your local Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC) or the Small Business Administration (SBA).
