Biz2Credit does a large no. of business acquisition deals. Normally as a buyer you need to put down a min. of 10% of your own money in case you can get a seller note for another 10%. The money can come from your own account or from you 401K. Register for free on and chose the case manager option. Bzi2Credit has 100 plus lenders on the platform offering 150 plus financial products.

Usually not, but sometimes. Do you have assets you can borrow against? Does the business have hard assets (real estate, etc.) that you can borrow against?

Last week, a person borrowed against their 401k to purchase for cash, with no hassles. That worked out very well.
