Personalized lending + Advising to Grow Your Business
Where others see risk, we see opportunity.
At the Entrepreneur Fund, we pair small business loans up to $750k with no-cost advising. No two businesses are alike, so our team partners with you to customize a plan that works for your business, not someone else’s.
As a nonprofit lender, we prioritize your needs, your business, and your community. It’s our privilege to support entrepreneurs like you who are bringing more vibrancy to northern Wisconsin (see service region map below).
Small business loans that Work for you
Now with interest rates as low as 6% for Wisconsin businesses.
Your potential for business growth often hinges on accessible financing. Imagine the possibilities if you could secure a working capital loan – acquiring your building, investing in new equipment, or purchasing a company truck. What doors could that open for your business?
Our team will work with you to find the best option to meet your needs and goals.
We offer multiple types of loans including SBA Microloan, SBA 7(a), and small business loans ranging from $1,000 to $750,000. Every loan is paired with strategic business advising at no additional cost.
Loans can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
- Equipment purchases
- Inventory or supplies
- Working capital
- Technology upgrades
- Real estate
Advising for Strategic Growth
We know there is a lot more to business success than money. That’s why we pair our loans with one-on-one advising at no cost to you. We don’t just give you the money, and we don’t just give you the advice – it’s the two together that make the magic happen.
Our business advisors will work with you to build a personalized plan based on your business’s unique challenges and opportunities and include strategies to help you achieve your next goal.
Business topics and areas your advisor offer support include:
- Strategic business planning
- Cash flow management
- Budgeting & financial projections
- Marketing & branding
- Management & operations
- And much more
