In Inc., Matthew J. Moisan praises the SBA’s clarification of PPP eligibility for VC-backed startups as helping create “a fast, inexpensive process for the companies.” The SBA now defines an affiliate as an investor who can block actions by a startup's board of directors; if the investor relinquishes that right, the business is no longer considered an affiliate and will have a better chance of meeting the headcount requirement and eventual success in its loan application.
