Many small businesses and most startups cannot qualify for traditional bank commercial loans. But there are many not-for-profit lenders that can help. Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) of all kinds can have a presence in local Clowdz® where businesses can find them and get the information and funding they need. Information on Small Business Development Centers and other local support agencies can also be found in these platforms.
”Crowd lending” is a growing trend on the Internet
today. Businesses can borrow from individual investors through
these platforms. For example, a lending site can fund the
business loan and then offer the investment opportunity to
individual investors in certain denominations. Coming soon, Clowdz
will have connections to the prominent crowd lending platforms
around the country that provide capital to small businesses.
