How come I can't log in to my CovingtonNetworking.com site?
Be sure to register with CovingtonNetworking first. The biggest misconception is that your covingtonwhoswho.com username and password is the same username and password you will use for CovingtonNetworking. You must first register with CovingtonNetworking.com at the top right hand side of the screen and make a unique username and password for that site. They are two completely separate sites requiring two separate usernames and passwords. See the Network with Members page for more information.
How is CovingtonNetworking.com different from the Covington Who's Who site?
The CovingtonNetworking.com site allows members to correspond back and forth with each other, send each other messages through the site directly, introduce yourself, post blogs, start conversations, post and search resumes, and more. The CWW site is geared more toward providing members with information on our products and services and enabling members to search other members in their field by location, contact them directly by email, visit their websites, and read their online profiles.

Questions about Covington Business Capital
How much funding can I obtain through CWW?
Depending on the working capital program you choose, you can receive anywhere from $5,000 to $250,000 in funds to be used however you deem fit for your business.
How fast can I receive funding?
With a merchant cash advance or a small business loan from CWW, your application can be reviewed in as little as 24 hours. Once approved, you will typically receive funding within 7 to 10 days. If you choose the traditional bank loan route, you may have to wait several months to receive your money. As such, when you need immediate working capital for your business, CWW’s fast and flexible programs have a clear advantage over a complicated and slow traditional bank loan.
Do I need a business plan to obtain working capital through CWW?
No. One of the many advantages of a CWW program over a traditional bank loan is that CWW does not require a business owner to provide a business plan in order to receive funding. On the other hand, the majority of traditional lenders require applicants to provide a written business plan that describes the nature of the business, target market, nature of competition, marketing plan, and list of likely expenses. They often also require financial models and documents such as a projected cash flow statement, balance sheet and income statement.
Can I qualify for funding if I have bad credit?
Yes. Because our small business loan and cash advance programs are based on your business' sales history rather than your personal credit history, a low credit score will not prevent you from acquiring the cash you need.
However, we do offer Platinum Funding programs for our cash advance and loan products, designed for businesses with a minimum credit score of 640. If you don’t meet this minimum credit score requirement, feel free to apply for our Standard cash advance and business loan programs.
What can the funds provided by CWW be used for?
Whatever your business needs! Unlike a traditional bank loan where the bank dictates what the loan can and cannot be used for, a CWW merchant cash advance or small business loan can be used however you see fit for your business. CWW believes that as a business owner, you know your business better than anyone and therefore know the best place to use the money.
Some common uses for our funding include paying seasonal expenses, meeting payroll expectations, remodeling your existing location or investing in a new location, purchasing inventory and equipment, developing an advertising and marketing campaign, creating an e-commerce website and hiring or training additional staff. Since CWW will typically provide you with working capital much faster than a traditional bank loan, some business owners turn to CWW to pay for emergency expenses (i.e., when you are hit with an unexpected tax liability, fine, or bill).
