Back to School Business Funding

Posted on,

Kids and teens aren’t the only ones with back to school needs, business owners are searching for back to school business funding, too.

Back to school business funding is a loose term that refers to the end of summer needs that business owners have. Seasonal business owners often find, depending on the industry, that their needs for business funding fall either at the start of the summer season or the start of the holiday season. 

Non-seasonal businesses often experience end of summer demand spikes that require back to school business funding. 


The need for back to school business funding arises for the same reason there is a summer slump that slows down sales. People are returning from vacations and getting back into their normal lives, hiring picks up again, and the ripple effect created from regular back to school shopping reaches into many industries.

Back to school shopping for elementary school, middle school, high school, and college highly impacts the retail industry, which often has slow sales in the summer when less people are at malls. The retail industry effects manufacturing, marketing, transportation, food and beverage, finance, and more.

Overall, companies are settling back into normal business operations as sales increase and employees are returning from vacations.

What it’s used for

Back to school business funding is used for a variety of assets depending on the industry. Since retail is the biggest industry affected, a boost in working capital is primarily used for:

Inventory Marketing Staff needs and payroll Starting new projects And more!

The early fall is also the time when businesses would start any other projects they need to have done before the holiday rush ties up all free time and cash flow. If a project isn’t done by late October, with or without funding, cash flow could be strained for the holiday season which could result in a major loss in profit.
