For over a decade, our 401(k) business financing service has helped entrepreneurs fund small businesses and franchises. Through an arrangement called Rollovers for Business Start-ups (ROBS), you can invest your funds from an eligible retirement account into a small business or franchise without taking a taxable distribution or getting a loan. Whether you want to buy an existing business, start one from scratch or grow one you currently have, ROBS could provide a significant part of your capital injection.
Guidant’s team of experts has helped more than 9,000 entrepreneurs invest $3 billion in retirement assets into small businesses and franchises. We strive to make the journey to financing simple and straightforward, and we take it a step further by eliminating uncertainty.
Starting your business debt-free will lower your overhead and eliminate risking your home equity. Without loan interest to pay, you can make money sooner rather than later.
