What We Do
We connect small businesses and entrepreneurs to funding sources that will fuel their businesses. Our lending partners provide a wide variety of loan options with a billion to business commitment. The accredited investors in the EquityNet community review all types of opportunities, providing funding and insights.
Our mission is to empower the entrepreneur as a human.
We believe the true opportunity in empowering entrepreneurs is not just to grow a business but to unlock the human spirit, which is the most powerful driver of positive change in the world. That’s why empowering cannot just mean raising capital. It means giving a damn.
Today, there are over 28 million small business owners who drive 46% of America’s GDP and employ over half our workforce. But this sector represents less than 1% of portfolio allocations.
Despite all the hoopla lately around financial innovation and venture capital, most business owners do not know where to turn for help in raising capital and getting the services they need to grow. Banks have only tightened their lending standards, and most new platforms are only focused on consumer products and buzz-worthy coastal-based start-ups. In other words, if you’re a small business owner today, the financial services you need have never been more out of reach.
That’s why we resolved to do things differently.
EquityNet provides educational tools and a virtual forum for entrepreneurs to connect with prospective investors. EquityNet does not participate in any substantive or confidential discussions with investors about companies or any transactions that might result.
