The Hedaya Capital Group provided a $1 million factoring facility to a footwear company that created a new category in the space with a shoe that sits at the intersection of the driving loafer and the boat shoe. Based in Dallas, the lightweight, waterproof and fashion-forward shoe brand launched on Kickstarter in 2017. Almost immediately, they began to expand domestically and internationally online and opened a flagship retail store in the United States 2022.

The Company required an additional capital investment to continue to grow, and their accountant referred them to The Hedaya Capital Group.

Discovering the Hedaya principals were cut from the same cloth as their uncle, a shoe industry veteran known for his honesty and integrity, the CEO felt a sense of ease and knew that he could trust their simple, easy process.

The goal is to bring in a lot more cash than you are expending in order to maximize your profits.

This can be a big problem for a small business — one you would rather avoid.

vintage business sign that says come in we're awesome

America is the best country to live in. We have our freedoms, and, for the most part, we can do what we want, when we want to do it. America is also a country that uses capitalism as its economic foundation. This means that private companies, such as your small to medium-sized business can operate how it wants, sell what it wants, and make profit off these ventures (within the law, of course). Goods and services are produced off supply and demand, which is known as a market economy. Capitalism is a wonderful system that allows businesses to profit as much as their products are in demand, and it allows consumers to have the goods and services that they want when they want it.

However, because of the fact that our economy is based on supply and demand, it can be cyclical, meaning that if demand plummets, it will be hard to sell your goods. Or, if an outside event out of your control, such as an errant virus or a war, threatens people and/or the economy, people could stop buying. This creates too much supply, and the prices of your goods fall. Facing economic slowdowns and...

When most small business owners begin their adventure as an entrepreneur, they aren’t quite sure of what obstacles might lie in their way. Why?

If you have heard of the Hedaya Capital Group, you likely know of us as a source of working capital to qualified businesses in the New York City and Tri-State area. For years, we have been happily helping small businesses get the extra working capital that they need when they need it. That being said, there is a lot more to running a business than looking for extra capital to fuel your growth. In fact, one of the best things that you can do for your business is to manage the money that you already have as optimally as possible.

While we are known for helping small businesses find the money that they need to grow, that is not what we will be discussing in today’s blog. Instead, we will be discussing a few money management tips that you should follow as a small business owner to ensure that you are managing the money that you do have correctly.

cash being handed from one person to another

There comes a time in every business owner’s life where they need more capital in order to successfully grow or maintain the status quo of their daily operations. Regardless of the reason that a business owner finds themselves in need of extra money, it is important to remember that there are ways to gain access to working capital without having to sell shares in the business.

One of the best ways to do so is to partner with a company that can provide you with accounts receivable factoring. As a company that helps small-to-medium size businesses in New York City and the greater Tri-State area gain access to working capital, our team recommends that businesses seeking extra working capital consider using accounts receivable factoring.

But what are the 4 situations that accounts receivable factoring is best used? Continue reading to find out.

Cash flow. When you think about it, that is a rather descriptive term. It is not called cash splash or cash trickle for a reason. Instead, the word ‘flow’ suggests a constant and sustainable movement of money in and out each month — hopefully trending positively towards your pockets.

While the concept of cash flow is rather easy to grasp, some business owners in the greater New York City and Tri-State areas struggle to cultivate a healthy cash flow themselves. Because of this, we will be using today’s blog as an opportunity to discuss some of the things that you should know about cash flow as a new business owner.

If you are a business owner in the Tri-State area, or even a prospective business owner for that matter, you have probably considered how accounts receivable management could benefit your business. After all, managing accounts receivable is pretty much an entire job on its own, and you already have a business to run and plenty of other things to worry about.

At the Hedaya Capital Group, we offer comprehensive accounts receivable management services to business owners in the New York City and Tri-State area so that they can focus on what really matters — growing sustainably.

In today’s blog, we will be discussing in-depth the benefits that one might experience when letting our team of management specialists handle your accounts receivable.

If you own a commercial venture that imports and exports goods to and from the country, you likely have a pretty good idea of just how easily international transactions can tie up your capital and burden your cash flow. Because the shipping and transport of goods between countries can often be delayed or impacted in some way by uncontrollable factors, money is often paid out before the imported good is in your possession — and that makes it really difficult for you to get your return on the investment. In an effort to help companies bring import goods without experiencing financial stagnancy, capital groups just like ours, here at the Hedaya Capital Group, offer import financing to alleviate the financial pressures experienced by international trade.

In today’s blog, we are going to discuss more about import finance and how a capital loan from our team can help your business optimize the efficiency and success of your imported goods business. Continue reading to learn more.

Whether you are the owner and operator of a local small business or a CFO at a larger commercial firm, factoring is something that should be on your radar. Sure, almost everyone has heard of factoring and know that it's a financing strategy that helps companies with cash flow issues because of late payments from their clients, but seldom do people actually understand how it can help.

As a capital group in the New York City area, our team, here at the Hedaya Capital Group, understands the unique benefits that a business or commercial venture can stand to gain from factoring. We also understand that someone who has never worked in finance might not be able to immediately understand those benefits. Because of this, we thought we might discuss the basics of factoring and how our factoring services might be able to best benefit your local New York City business.

When someone needs working capital for their small business or seed money for their next business venture, they have to choose between using a public lender or a private lender to work with for a working capital loan.

Here at the Hedaya Capital Group, we obviously have a horse in the race, being a private lender, and all — but it is important to note that in the end, it is your unique financial situation that will determine if a contract with a public lender or a private lender, such as ourselves, is the right decision for you and your business venture.

In today’s blog post we will very briefly discuss some of the fundamental differences between public lenders and private lenders so that you, as a business owner, can make a more educated decision as to what style of borrowing that you select. Continue reading to learn more and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about whether public lending might work for you.

teacher at business school

With the ever growing and evolving start-up landscape, a very important question among business owners is always raised – “how can my company finance its growth?”

Having met with dozens of young entrepreneurs, I learned that financing information available to new business owners is often incomplete. Contrary to the beliefs of those who enjoy popular TV shows such as Shark Tank and The Profit, giving up equity in exchange for seemingly small dollars (even if Mark Cuban is attached to them) is not always the answer. While it is certainly appealing to be on national TV or to gain powerful investors, giving up a portion of the company’s profits and decision making power can ultimately be very costly, and can arguably be deemed the most expensive form of financing. It has been proven, timeand time again, that a company with a solid business plan and leadership can still succeed without divesting ownership.

When I first joined the world of commercial finance, I was surprised with how little of my schooling in business and law touched on financing for small and mid-size...
