You’ve got the business plan down pat and you’re ready to build your dream company. Or maybe your company has already outgrown its space and you’re looking to invest in a larger one.

What now?

Regardless of what stage you’re in, you’ll probably need a way to fund your end goal. With this in mind, we’ve designed the Learn Hub — an interactive, one-stop shop of business loan advice from our in-house experts and other outside resources we trust.

Why should you trust us? Not only does CDC Small Business Finance offer affordable business loans, we’re a 40-year-old nonprofit that provides free business coaching to qualified borrowers. In fact, over the last eight years, our very own business advisors have provided 40,000 hours of free advice to entrepreneurs, at no charge.

“The purpose of our ‘Learn’ hub is to expand our reach and help even more entrepreneurs,” said Chuck Sinks, who leads the business advising team. “The idea here is to leverage what we do in the business advising department by way of technology.”

Need business loan advice? What to expect from ‘Learn’ Hub

When you arrive at the ‘Learn’ Hub, you’ll be treated to a collection of business loan how-to guides, videos, articles, services and more. We curated all this information to help move you toward getting the business loan that meets your specific needs.

Here’s a glimpse of what to expect:

  • Next steps if I got declined: Did you get turned down by a traditional bank for a business loan? Don’t despair. Community lenders like us can help. Since we’re a non-profit, we have more flexibility in our loan approvals compared to banks.
  • Tips from other entrepreneurs: Many of our own small business borrower clients have gone on to open multiple locations, exponentially increase hiring and reach other impressive milestones. Here’s your chance to learn their best practices, tips and secrets to success.
