Forward Honors Financial Literacy Month by Supporting Customer Education

April 22, 2024 | Company News

April 22, 2024 — Forward’s mission is centered around helping small businesses thrive – especially those struggling to access working capital. Forward’s product, revenue-based financing, is a unique, innovative funding solution designed to support small businesses underserved by traditional financing options. With a unique product comes the need for more education. That’s why we take financial literacy seriously at Forward, and take great care to ensure our customers understand the product they are receiving from us.

In honor of our mission and Financial Literacy Month – dedicated to raising public awareness of financial education and wellbeing – we’re excited to highlight a few important ways we’re contributing to this worthy initiative.

  • Launching a new Resources section on our website, offering a deeper dive into a range of topics, including revenue-based financing, account support, and financial wellness. We look forward to sharing and growing these resources over time, because more educated customers are more successful entrepreneurs – and that benefits everyone.
  • Continuing our partnership with the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC), a Boston-based nonprofit, to provide our customers tuition-free, executive education. This year we’re offering the Inner City Capital Connections program – a “mini-MBA” for busy small business owners in under-resourced or economically-distressed areas.
  • Sharing, an entire website dedicated to educating a range of audiences – small business owners, partners, and policy makers – and to offering objective, balanced information about revenue-based financing.

We hope you will check out these great resources to learn more, and in the spirit of Financial Literacy Month, please share them with any small business friends or family you think might benefit from them.
