The length of time that it takes to finance a business or to obtain a loan often surprises business owners. Some triggers that may impact your lender's decision include:

Amount of Loan
Banks often approve smaller loans faster.

Complexity
New technology or unique businesses sometimes take longer to approve if the bank does not understand the industry or potential profitability.

Business Age
Loans to established businesses often move faster than those to start-ups.
