You’re in the business of lending money to qualified borrowers, or educating them to become more financially savvy. But what about those small businesses that don’t qualify for your financing products? Are they lost opportunities? Thanks to Connect2Capital, they represent a wealth of opportunities for your organization, both today and tomorrow.
Connect2Capital is the first-ever, single online network that brings together mission-driven CDFI lenders and financial institutions, to help small business owners grow their business and boost their communities. For those small businesses who don’t qualify with your organization, you have a trustworthy venue in which to refer them. These “almost-there” applicants get a second look by mission-driven lenders in our network—partners focused on small business success, education, and community growth.
Are these lenders competitive with your business? The answer is a resounding “no,” as they’re non-depository lenders. In fact, by referring these small businesses to our CDFI lender network, you build goodwill, as well as a solid reputation among these businesses. You also plant the seed for future revenue as businesses supported in non-traditional ways often return to the original lender for other banking or financing products.
