Four Entrepreneurs Discussing Different Fund Options

Flexible SBA loans from a preferred lender.

With decades helping entrepreneurs access acquisition funding, we know how to find you affordable financing with flexible requirements through a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) loan.

Whether you’re at the beginning or the end of your search to acquire, our lenders can advise you and execute financing plans for your new business.

We offer term loans with up to 90% financing available for searchers looking to acquire in all industries.

Fast approvals and an expedited process.

We know searchers can face tight deadlines, and we work diligently to close your loan fast.

As an SBA Preferred Lender, Byline Bank has the authority to make credit decisions in-house. You’ll typically receive your term sheet in 24 to 48 hours after submitting full documentation, and we aim to close loans within 50 days of receiving signed term sheets.

Why Byline Bank?

Searchers choose Byline for our flexible equity requirements and seller note terms, as well as the ability to add on conventional financing for greater purchase price needs. Our lenders have decades of experience working with self-funded searchers. They can offer industry insights—and are never too busy to discuss loan structures, seller notes and cash flow.
