Design Firm Scores $50,000 EGF SmartLoan

Christina Casanas-Judd and General Judd, owners of Me and General DesignBrooklyn, NY -Me and General Design is a boutique interior design firm operating out of Brooklyn which specializes in cutting edge residential, hospitality and commercial design. The husband and wife team of Cristina Casañas-Judd and General Judd has been looking to do a major launch of some of their branded products, in particular their Swick Board, a patented luxury sound system housed in a life size surfboard, but needed additional capital to make it happen. 

Cristina learned about Excelsior Growth Fund’s online SmartLoan through a colleague.  She was thrilled with the ease of the application process, which took less than 5 business days from application to funding.  Me and General now has a small business loan from EGF to fund this new growth area of their business.
