The fact that you are here means that you are serious about starting your own business. Congratulations, this is the first step toward personal business success.

Starting a business requires more than passion, it demands diligent planning, business knowledge, and hard work. Our goal with Monocle is to help you plan well, gather knowledge to make sound decisions, and lay the foundation for a solid business.

Fiscal Responsibility

Seventy percent of small- or medium-sized businesses begin with money from personal savings or borrowed from family and/or friends. MONOCLE will help ensure those funds are used wisely and with as little risk as possible.

However, if you need a loan, it helps to make a good first impression. Thorough preparation reduces risk in the eyes of the lender … increasing loan probability. This application helps you prepare for that vital first meeting by giving you access to necessary information in an easy-to-understand package.
