Turn Excess Inventory Into New Customers With Bargainer

Turn Excess Inventory Into New Customers With Bargainer

Those at Bargainer know it’s a tough time for local businesses, and Bargainer wants to lend a hand. They are an Austin based startup app that lets local retailers use their excess inventory to find, and be found, by new customers in their community. Retailers simply post their items on the app and customers in their neighborhood reserve those items for pick-up. If you’d like to learn more, visit them online or send a note to Jeremiah, one of the co-founders, at Jeremiah@bargainerapp.com.

City of Austin Economic Injury Bridge Loan

City of Austin Economic Injury Bridge Loan

The Austin Economic Injury Bridge Loan Program provides loans up to $35,000 for daily needs like rent, payroll, and debt. Eligible local businesses must be able to demonstrate an economic loss associated with the COVID-19 global pandemic. The loan is intended to “bridge the gap” between the time a major catastrophe hits and when a business secures recovery resources. The Austin Economic Injury Bridge Loan Program terms require payment of loan dollars up to 12 months at 3.75%.
This loan is not designed to be the primary source of assistance to affected businesses. To be eligible, you must be headquartered in a City of Austin Council district and have already applied for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loan.
