I am trying to accuire funding for a startup Precision turning contract shop.
My partner has about 20 year experiance in sales and management and I have about the same in operations. We were both downsized about 6 weeks ago. We are finding that money for a startup shop is very tight. Everyone wants 10 to 20% down. The equipment that we want runs around $200,000. We have 2 customers ready to cut Purchase Orders. But, without our having a machine to run parts on they can't

Can you guys give me some help? We have gone to local banks, Lease companies, and the SBA with little or no success. Any other info or suggestion wouldbe helpful

Thank you
