Let’s Work Together For Your Clients' Success

Partnering With Community Futures Grows A Prosperous Small Business Community

We know that it can be frustrating when an enthusiastic entrepreneur comes in, has a great business idea, however, the business can not get the funding they need to get started.

When a financial institution’s business lending policies do not allow for a prospective client to receive a lending product, we want to partner with you to ensure their success and help bridge that gap. 

We do so by providing one-on-one coaching, and mentoring;

To give guidance in building a solid business plan by planning for the best case, average and worst case scenarios

To give guidance in creating a marketing plan or expansion strategy

To research financing options

Partnering with us helps create community growth, jobs and economic diversification in the East Parkland region.
