Each loan program has its own interest rate and term and you’ll have full transparency on what’s being offered for your loan should you get approved. SBA 504 loans in New Jersey go up to 25 year terms and have below-market interest rates that are updated each month, while SBA 7(a) loan interest rates are calculated using the prime rate. Rest assured that Pursuit will work with you to find the program with the best rates and terms for your needs.

Yes! While Pursuit does not offer grants at this time, we’re a participating lender in the NJ Capital Access Program. If your NJ-based business has been in operation for at least one year, you can apply for up to $250,000 at a fixed interest rate between 9.5-11.5%, with a 3-5 year term. Funds from this program can be used for working capital, supplies, rent, utilities, marketing and advertising, and other business expenses.

Approval times vary by loan program. The best way to streamline the process is to have all required documentation ready to go before you apply, and to be responsive when additional follow up is needed.
