#91 Chris Meehan - The Guide to Financing

In this episode I'm joined by Chris Meehan who is a Vice President for The Bancorp. The Bancorp is a business financing services company specializing in working with dental, veterinary and other medical professions. Chris has worked in the healthcare financing space for over ten years and brings a lot of personal experience and perspective to what you all need as a veterinarian when it comes to financing and preparing to look at lending options. We discuss how banks look at veterinarians, how to best prepare to be a good borrower, and more feedback on practice ownership.

  • How do lenders look at veterinarians? How impactful are student loans?
  • What is the team you need to build to be a successful owner?
  • What are the biggest factors a veterinarian can position themselves to have the best experience with lenders?
  • How much should some save to have as a down payment?
  • The different lender types - specialty, conventional, and SBA?
  • What is a major difference between start-ups and acquisitions?
  • What are obstacles or deal killers you see?
