99% of our small business loans are to “traditionally unbankable” entrepreneurs. We specialize in working with small business owners from all walks of life, helping them become loan ready and access capital. Referring a small business owner in need of support can help get them the resources they need.
When your company aligns with the economic development of communities of color, women, veterans, LGBTQ+, and immigrants/refugees, you will receive more than recognition. You will gain the satisfaction of knowing that you are building and sustaining neighborhoods by funding our events and programs that directly benefit small business owners.
With a social impact investment, feel good about where your dollars are going: our communities! We manage investor funds with guaranteed returns to provide loans to small business owners in Washington and Oregon from $5,000 to $350,000. Your investment of $100,000 to $1,000,000 lets you and the businesses you support thrive.
Each year we have a limited number of internship opportunities in a range of areas open to students and community members. Being an intern with Business Impact NW gives you a unique opportunity to earn course credit while gaining valuable business skills and supporting a non-profit organization.
