“While asset values have come back, consumer confidence is up, and the economy is turning a corner, both rising unemployment and a credit crisis continue to affect us.”
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) February 3, 2010
Guidant Financial Group announced today that it has inked an exclusive partnership with NextBigFranchise.com to provide franchise financing information and services for the website’s visitors.
“Discovery is the first step for any prospective franchisee,” says Guidant Cofounder David Nilssen. “In partnering with NextBigFranchise.com we will be able to deliver educational content to their visitors and provide them with an understanding of how the different financing options available to them.”
With the economy in the midst of a jobless recovery, Nilssen believes that providing prospective entrepreneurs with the resources they need to realistically consider self-employment can lead to a resuscitation of American small business.
“While asset values have come back, consumer confidence is up, and the economy is turning a corner, both rising unemployment and a credit crisis continue to affect us,” explains Nilssen. “There are millions of Americans who could pursue self-employment but who don’t understand how to get started, or how they might finance a franchise.”
Marc Kieckenapp, cofounder of NextBigFranchise.com, explains that he chose Guidant Financial Group as the site’s exclusive financing partner because they are the leading provider of franchise financing services in the country. “While there are many companies that provide a service,” he says, “Guidant is one of the few that offers an array of franchise financing solutions through the industry’s most experienced team of consultants.”
NextBigFranchise.com is the only web portal that offers video as a way to explore different franchise opportunities. “We are in a time when people want to ‘look before they leap,’ if you will,” explains Nilssen. “With the use of video, NextBigFranchise.com can provide prospective entrepreneurs with a level of information and discovery currently unavailable in the marketplace.”
