“As a startup software company we are constantly battling the highs and lows of cash flow peril. SE Greenhouse’s loan program came to our rescue. As a startup software company we had no resources available to seize it, the SEG loan committee saw potential in us and gave us the capital we needed to make a huge jump forward in establishing ourselves as an independent company.”
