Moody's Grant

Cash Flow Gets Easier for Small Businesses Thanks to Our  Partnership With Moody’s Corporation

We have partnered with the Moody’s Corporation, a global provider of credit ratings, research, tools and analysis to collectively provide education, certifications, and tools on cash-flow management and forecasting to the nation’s largest small business assistance network, America’s Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs).   


By delivering cash flow management and forecasting education combined with cutting-edge software to the SBDC Network, this partnership will enhance the impact of SBDCs to stimulate entrepreneurship and help small businesses grow. The three-year grant will provide training & certification by cash-flow expert Finagraph Corporation, the makers of CashFlowTool. This includes in-person and online training courses as well as certification that will be delivered at national, regional and state SBDC events as well as e-learning training & certification opportunities. 

Three Easy Steps to Cashflow Success

1. SBDC Advisors complete their cashflow certification courses online or in-person.

2. SBDCs advisors and centers empower their clients with their in-depth cash-flow expertise 

3. After an SBDC client has met with their advisor they will receive a 6-month free subscription to help them manage and forecast their cash flow.

According to a January 2019 Wakefield Research survey, 61% of small businesses regularly struggle with cash flow.  Additionally, 82% of business failures are due to poor cash flow management skills or poor understanding of cash flow, according to the March 2017 Preferred CFO study.  

We are proud to work with Moodys Corporation and other global partners. Together we seek to empower people with the knowledge, resources, and confidence they need to create a better future- for themselves, their communities, and the environment.
