As a sci-tech startup founder, understanding your options for obtaining funding is critical. Knowing where to get smart money can be everything.

SBA backed-loans can be one source of financing for a small technology business. Listen to the podcast of my friend and banker Martha Londagin of Legacy National Bank. She talks about using SBA loans to obtain non-dilutive financing for a company.

The SBA (Small Business Administration) helps small businesses get loans. The SBA works with lenders to provide loans to small businesses. The agency doesn't lend money directly to small business owners. Instead, it sets guidelines for loans made by its partnering lenders, community development organizations, and micro-lending institutions. (Source:
