Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
What documents do I need to get started?
None! To get started, all we need is some basic information to better understand your business. Eventually, we’ll need a few documents to support the loan amount we’re requesting from the bank, but we’ll determine that together and make it easy for you to submit it.
How much does it cost to apply?
How does blueacorn make money?
Our service is 100% FREE because The CARES Act mandates banks pay us a fee, if they approve your loan. That means, we don’t get paid, if you don’t get funded. This ensures we’re working hard for you behind-the-scenes & every dollar you get stays in your pocket, where it belongs.
Am I required to use blueacorn’s lender?
Nope! Our company’s mission is to always do what’s best for you! That means, you can use our tools to prepare your application, free of charge, download a PDF of your completed application and take it to the bank of your choice.
How long will it take to get my money?
We wish this was a simple answer, as much as you do. On April 24th, a fresh round of PPP funding was signed into law. On April 27th, banks will resume processing and approving PPP loans. As soon as you complete your application on blueacorn, we will push your loan through to our banking partners. The process will move quickly from there and we’ll be here to advocate for you and keep you updated every step of the way.
Do I need to pay anything back to the government?
The loan is completely forgiven (you don’t have to pay it back) as long as you follow the SBA’s guidelines by using your PPP money to keep employees on your payroll for 8 weeks and rehiring the same number of employees on your payroll as of February 15, 2020.
Can new businesses apply?
Yes! As long as you were operating before February 15, 2020 and have supporting documents to prove it, you can apply. If you’re not sure, start the application process and we’ll work together to determine if you’re eligible or not.
Do freelancers and gig workers qualify for PPP funding?
Yes! If you freelance, have a side gig, run a small business or otherwise work for yourself, you can apply for a PPP loan to help make ends meet. The loan is 100% forgiven (you don’t have to pay it back) if you follow the guidelines and use the money over the next 8 weeks to pay yourself and make rent or utility payments, for example. Blueacorn will guide you through the process and make it as easy as possible to apply & get funded.
How soon can I start?
Right now! The first round of funding ran out in 10 days. As soon as you apply through blueacorn, we’ll make sure you’ve secured your spot in line, so you don’t miss out twice.
We’re calling on Lenders, Accountants, Community Organizations & Influencers to join us in helping underserved businesses access the funding they need.
