Parag Nevatia, Managing Member & Founder at the Metuchen-based EZ Funding Solutions, LLC, perched from his table at the Middlesex Chamber’s Largest Networking Party, looked around and assessed the appeal of this region.
“There’s a synergy in this part of the state where people are trying to help each other, and that extends beyond this room,” he said.
After a successful, 20-year stint in the commercial banking and lending industry, Nevatia established EZ Funding Solutions LLC with the vision and desire to improve the quality of credit in the market.
Being certified by the National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders (NAGGL) that governs the SBA Program nationally, Nevatia performs credit and risk analysis, developing creative solutions to overcome obstacles and mitigate those risks, structure debt correctly, and then underwrite a project or loan – all upfront, before presenting it to the right lender who has the appetite to finance the project.
Since 1999, Nevatia has financed businesses in just about every Industry, ranging from $150,000 to $10 million, mainly in the New York metro area, but also nationwide.
And as a project finance consultant and a business loan advisory, Nevatia said he has a vested interest in the regional economy being as robust as possible. As such, he serves on the Middlesex County Advisory Board of the Small Business Development Center at Rutgers University, and the Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Committee. He is an approved counselor of SBDC and conducts monthly seminars and webinars on various topics relating to Business Financing.
“This is a dynamic region. I love this part of the country and there are so many positive changes happening. The growth prospect in Middlesex County is significant and I want to be part of that and also give back to my community,” he said.
Middlesex Regional Chamber of Commerce conducts 5 signature events in a calendar year and the Largest Networking Party (referred to as the LNP) has been an annual event for 15 years now. Every year the Chamber gives an opportunity to its current members to showcase their business, whether it’s sampling gourmet cuisine from the area’s best restaurants and caterers, or networking with a business within Middlesex county, it’s all about displaying your services and shining in front of an average crowd of about 3000 people that come into one room that one evening. This really is the region’s Largest Networking event!
