The Business Scholarship
Factor Finders $1,000 Semi-Annual U.S. College Scholarship
Education is the first step of becoming a successful business owner, and Factor Finders values the hard work and dedication it takes to obtain a degree from a college or university, just as starting a business requires that same tenacity. To prove how much we value these qualities, Factor Finders is offering a scholarship for students to put toward receiving their degree.
Factor Finders helps small businesses get the funding they need to improve their cash flow with through invoice factoring, and one of the biggest benefits of factoring is that the money does not need to be paid back, minimizing debt. Just as Factor Finders helps small businesses to avoid negatives on their balance sheet, we want to do the same for students.
