Discover how you can easily use the banking products to make your business grow! Many successful businesses have started only from one idea and the willingness of a bank to invest in that idea.

The vast experience of the banking and finance professionals with whom we’ve closely worked on designing the Banking for Business Course proved that many great ideas turned into dust or prosperous businesses have eventually failed because of 3 main reasons:

1. the lack of bank financing
2. choosing the wrong financing product
3. an inappropriate management of the financing costs

Do you want to know how to make the banks give you the money you need for turning your business idea into reality?

    Exclusive content translated into a common language easy to understand and to apply. Thanks to the practical examples and useful infographics, I quickly understood the payment methods used in foreign trade transactions and I chose the letter of credit as the best option in working with my oversea business partners. It was an enjoyable experience that makes me feel enriched thanks to all the insider secrets that I discovered and I applied in my business. I will recommend this banking course to all my close business partners.

    The sale and lease-back it was a quick way of getting the cash I needed. I haven’t known about this possibility of financing but thanks to the useful tips I found in this online course, I managed to easily solve my liquidity problem. Great course! I like the simple ways of achieving significant results so for me, getting valuable information synthesized through concise content and visual schematic Infographics, meant a lot. It was my first online learning experience and I am happy that I decided to enroll.

    Talking about money, banking and finance, I can say that Banking for Business is the best investment I’ve ever made! I am thrilled by all the examples and practical knowledge that I’ve already started to apply in my business. The fact that I could submit my answers twice helped use the BigMainStreet practical applications system both to check my knowledge and also to internalize better the most important information that I achieved throughout this online course.
