Closing The First ECF Capital Deal #Ecommerce


Closing on a deal can feel incredibly intimidating and scary. How do you know if this is the right fit for your company? What is the paperwork involved? Today my friends and colleagues, Bill D’Alessandro of and Michael Jackness of, join the show to help me explain how the team at ECF Capital finally ended up choosing a deal to close on and the work that went into it.
