“When it came time to set up a new school facility—after months of negotiating with key stakeholders—we were so grateful to have ThinkForward still by our side, continuing to provide the excellent financial advice and alternate funding resources that we have come to rely on.”

Relationship-based Approach

A relationship-based approach has measurably more success over its conventional “scattershot” alternative, even for the most difficult projects to finance. We have developed strong relationships with industry partners over time, which encourages healthy competition during the exploratory stages of funding a project. The result is competitive bidding among a select group of potential lenders capable of superior service delivery and execution.
