Which companies does Advance support?
Advance makes capital available to tenacious small businesses and nonprofits committed to advancing local economic opportunity. We look for “tweens” — businesses and organizations that don’t fit SBA, microloan, or bank criteria and where our investment will be the tipping point enabling a project to proceed. As an engaged community partner, we use a social credit ideology to finance investments up to $500,000 in nonprofits, social enterprises, and small businesses at rates that encourage success.
