Venturize: Helping Small Businesses Borrow Confidently

Commitment by

Opportunity Finance Network

In 2016, Opportunity Finance Network committed to launch Venturize, an online platform that will equip small business owners with the information they need to access responsible, affordable capital. Borrowers who have historically faced barriers to capital have more options today, including online and alternative lenders, but may take on loans with hidden fees and high APRs that can devastate their businesses. Venturize provides small business owners with clear, trustworthy information and mobile-friendly tools to compare their financing options or prepare a loan application. By 2017, with support from Sam’s Club Giving Program, Venturize will engage 250,000 women and minority small business owners under the age of forty to make informed loan decisions.
