- 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.
- Does it cost anything to pitch an investment opportunity to the Methow Investment Network?
TwispWorks incurs significant administrative costs associated with coordinating the Methow Investment Network. While there is no charge to pitch to the investment network, we do charge $50 to any business that receives funding as a result of their pitch to the Methow Investment Network.
