Low interest, high impact: Providing patient capital to Black and Brown small businesses

  • Supporting Black and Brown businesses includes both access to capital AND tailored technical assistance.
  • Lenders interested in supporting Black and Brown businesses need to hear from their potential clients, adapt their application processes, and partner to create mutually beneficial outcomes for both the lenders and businesses.
  • Local and regional efforts to purchase from Black and Brown businesses are wonderful, though those efforts need to be authentic and sustained to have long-lasting impact.

Hosts: Terese Caro (Legacy Redevelopment Corporation) & Rachaad Howard (Cream City Print Lounge)
