Why Invest in Ventures?
Your gift empowers entrepreneurs with limited resources to build small businesses, improve their lives, and enrich our community.
Give today at any level to empower aspiring entrepreneurs:
$25 gives a client enrolled in our Business Basics Course a workbook full of exercises, resources, and information.
$50 covers the cost of loan underwriting to open the door to low-cost capital for small business owners who do not have access to outside capital.
$200 sends one entrepreneur through our eight-week Business Basics Course, learning the basics of business marketing, sales, financial management, and operations.
$500 enables specialized one-on-one coaching in pricing, packaging, and production so that an entrepreneur can prepare their products for retail and wholesale markets.
Your support unlocks access to business development services for people in our community who face barriers to starting a small business: women, people of color, immigrants, and individuals with low income. You can help aspiring entrepreneurs to increase their income potential, achieve long-term financial stability, provide for their families, and build a diverse and vibrant network of small business owners in the Puget Sound area.
Our typical client supports a family of two on approximately $24,000 per year when they enter our program. Because of Ventures, a single mom of two can become a CEO of her own microenterprise, a disabled veteran can create new career path, and an ambitious immigrant can achieve the American Dream.
