Borrower Q&A

  • What size loan can I apply for?
    There is no minimum or maximum amount you can apply for.
  • How long does the loan process take?
    There is not a set amount of time the process takes. TwispWorks, along with volunteer mentors, can help you with the application process and once complete, will circulate applications to investors. Businesses seeking a loan will be invited to an investor meeting to present their idea for funding. Not all loan requests are funded and so providing a compelling business case is important.
  • How are loans structured and made?
    The terms of loans are arranged directly between the investor and the borrowing business. Investor members will use an instrument of their choice — usually a promissory note.

The MIN application process consists of three steps:

STEP 1
Complete the Application Coversheet including a brief business outline, Legal Disclaimer and Your Agreement and submit the form online, by mail or at Twispworks.

STEP 2
Once approved, you will be asked to provide a detailed business plan and financial projections to the MIN contact person.

STEP 3
Pitch your opportunity at a quarterly meeting of MIN members or request that your opportunity be submitted to the members via email.
