Who We Are

We are an unparalleled financial support system that provides small business owners with access to capital, networks, and coaching. We work to build inclusive and accessible options for these determined business owners. For over 25 years we have served a client base that is nearly 80% women, people of color, or immigrants.

Small businesses uplift communities and anchor local economies while creating opportunities for themselves, their families, their employees, and our neighborhoods. Yet entrepreneurs who are people of color, women, and immigrants often struggle to secure capital and resources, as they are systematically shut out from traditional financing.

In addition to providing resources and loans to small businesses, we also conduct original research, advocate for policy changes, and finance community facility construction projects, such as community health centers, homeless services facilities, and youth recreational facilities in low-income neighborhoods through our New Markets Tax Credit program.

Our Demographics

Workplace diversity matters to us, and it isn’t just a catchphrase. More than two thirds of our staff are women and people of color.
