Pacific Community Ventures is a nonprofit social enterprise that engages small businesses, investors and policymakers to build an economy that works for everyone. We create quality jobs and stimulate investments in underserved communities through two primary areas of programming:
As a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) we offer Small Business Advising & Small Business Lending programs that connect small business owners to the expertise and capital they need to grow their businesses and hire new employees. Our Business Advising program uses an online platform and algorithm to connect small business owners with pro bono expert business advisors who provide tailored, hands-on assistance. Our Business Lending program provides loans of up to $200,000 to small businesses that have been turned down by a bank or the SBA.
Our Impact Advisory practice conducts research and evaluation to impact investors and policymakers to drive more capital to social good. We work with a wide range of organizations to define, measure, and communicate the social outcomes achieved from their impact investments in underserved communities.
