About Eric Inlaw:

BanksMore Funding, LLC was founded mid-February 2021 by Eric Inlaw with his business partner Daniel Earley. Inlaw and Earley worked on small-to-medium and large-scale business transactions for several years and, in this work, noted difficulties in sourcing business capital. To help entrepreneurs and established business owners gain access to business funding with a high degree of transparency and swift closings, BanksMore was formed.

Originally from New York City, Inlaw moved to Petoskey Michigan in 2010. Prior to BanksMore, Inlaw began working as a business plan writer with financial modeling for entrepreneurs. It was in this capacity that he met Earley. BanksMore, with offices in Grand Rapids and Grand Haven Michigan, provides creative funding options for businesses within the lower-middle market sector. The company focuses on early stage businesses and mid-level going-concerns, as well as start-ups. In his role at BanksMore, Inlaw is a private business loan officer and banker with brokerage responsibilities. The company arranged representation on the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, the Wisconsin EDC, North Central Illinois EDC and the Ohio EDC. In these relationships, BanksMore serves as a funding support "tool" state agencies utilize to assist entrepreneurs and local businesses with economic requirements. Inlaw has strong relationships with PriceWaterhouseCoopers (Detroit) and the Miller Canfield legal firm (Grand Rapids).

In New York, Inlaw was President of a commercial real estate start-up that focused on homeowner insolvency. He was responsible for creating a methodology that provided homeowners with the means to avoid foreclosure. The method, based on two algorithms, was patented in 2004 and became the cornerstone "resolution model" in the homeowner recover efforts during the 2008-2009 mortgage crisis. His work was studied in congress with support from [then] Senator Hillary Clinton's Office and the Office of Congressman Charles Rangel, as a precursor to the "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act" under the Obama Administration. Within this Act, the HAMP and HARP programs became derivative actions aimed at furthering homeowner recovery efforts in which Eric's Patented Methodology played a role.

Prior to real estate, Inlaw had a 20-plus year career in the school textbook publishing industry. Working for Zaner-Bloser Publishers (Highlights For Children company) as a Sales Executive, Inlaw was successful at providing the entire NYC School System with primer handwriting books spanning kindergarten through third grades. This accomplishment carried significant rewards and national recognition within the NEA and AFT. Inlaw also worked for Harcourt Brace Jovanovich (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt).

Inlaw travels often but when at home he is an avid walker, cyclist and enjoys downtime with his granddaughter and playing the piano!
