If you’ve always wanted to start your own business but felt overwhelmed by the financing process, it’s time to look into 401(k) business financing. Also known as Rollovers for Business Startups (ROBS), this financing method enables you to collect your own money from your own retirement account to start or buy a business — without incurring fees or penalties. 

Banks are highly likely to reject a loan for a small business, and, if you’re in the minority of applicants who get approved, your business starts out both in debt and at the mercy of interest rates. If you turn to private investors, you no longer own 100 percent of your company. But with ROBS financing, you can start your business out debt free, putting you fully in control of your investment.

Fund your business using Rollover Business Financing (ROBS) in five simple steps.


Form a C Corporation


Create a 401(k) plan for your corporation


Rollover your personal retirement account to your new company’s retirement plan


Use your new retirement plan to buy stock in your corporation


 The funds become available

Success Stories

Your patience in explaining/teaching the ROBS process is unrivaled —we communicated over the course of 12 months BEFORE I signed the contract. That, along with the thoroughness and care for your clients after the sale, is why I count myself as extremely fortunate and blessed that we connected. Can’t thank you enough for your help!

My research into ROBS revealed two absolute truths: the process is complex and it needs to strictly adhere to IRS and DOL regulations. I turned to Frank because I like that he has a background as a lawyer. Frank was knowledgeable, patient and very generous with his time. He never made me feel like the meter was always running.

Frank Selden was instrumental in the creation of my corporation using my IRA funds. Frank and his team are well versed in the process and, from start to finish, made it effortless and simple to execute. There are plenty of companies that claim to handle the ROBs process — but they’re just marketing firms, whereas Frank’s experience is evident from day one.
