As a nonprofit and a CDFI, our work would not be possible without the many community partners that we have with which we stand shoulder to shoulder in the work to make small business ownership more equitable. Here is a list of those that make our work possible:

Partner Organizations in Alaska

Alaska District Office of the Small Business Administration
Alaska Growth Capital
Alaska Small Business Development Center (SBDC)
Anchorage Chamber of Commerce
Eielson TSM
Evergreen Businesses Capital
Fairbanks Economic Development Corporation
Ft. Wainwright TSM
JBER Elmendorf TSM
JBER Richardson TSM
MJ Murdock Charitable Trust
PTAC AK
SBDC AK

What makes us different

  • We support and fund established businesses AND startups
  • We have technical assistance resources to help clients improve areas of their business plan and financial statements so they can become more qualified applicants
  • We refer to our resource partners when areas of credit, capacity, or character need attention
  • We are a non-profit, providing loans and technical assistance thanks to USDA RMAP, USDA IRP, SBA microloans, full SBA 7A, SBAexpress, RIBA free, ITIN, and outside private sources including individuals, organizations/corporations, and financial institutions.
  • 100% of our loan clients are ineligible for traditional loans from banks.  Through our funding, small business owners are able to access the financial resources to launch or grow a successful business.  For us, success means that these owners can create living-wage jobs for themselves, their families, and their staff.  This success allows them to positively impact the community around them, and also "graduate" to utilize traditional funders as their business grows.
