Press release from: 40Billion.com, Inc.

Enables existing Small and Medium Businesses to raise up to $1 million in short-term loans for 9 months using social networking.

Atlanta, GA - February 21, 2011 -- 40Billion.com, an online micro-funding and social networking platform for entrepreneurs and business professionals, today announced new short-term loan options that enable small- and medium-sized businesses to raise up to $1 million in commercial paper for up to 9 months.

Commercial paper is an unsecured promissory note to meet the short-term financing and cash flow needs of businesses and can be a more affordable alternative to a traditional bank line-of-credit. Most commonly used by large corporations to raise quick and low-cost working capital, commercial paper has been in existence for over a century.

This reputable financing option is now available to small- and medium-sized businesses seeking to borrow $5,000 to $1,000,000 for up to 270 days, as well as investors seeking to diversify their investments and potentially earn a quick return while supporting U.S. small and medium businesses.

"Our short-term loan option using commercial paper offers a revolutionary solution to the problems faced by millions of existing small- and mid-sized business entrepreneurs trying to find affordable working capital," said Harendra Jani, VP of strategy and planning at 40Billion.com.

According to Jani, there are several advantages over traditional bank loans: "It is unsecured and does not create any lien on the business’ assets; the discount rate is negotiated between the entrepreneurs and investors online, so ventures with high SBRS scores or good relationships may get better rates; the wide range of maturity, from 15 days to 270 days, offers a lot of flexibility; and, it can be used frequently for a variety of short-term cash needs such as payroll, inventory, and marketing."

Since 2008, the company has facilitated over $30 million in business fundraising projects and aims to address a $40 billion funding gap with innovative small-business financing tools enhanced by the power of online social networking.
