We build innovative financial systems for communities

We provide loans to small businesses using funds sourced from people in their community.
We have initiated over $370,000 in loans for 23 businesses with support from nearly 2,500 people.

Hey small businesses: You invest in your community. What if they invested in you?

Community Sourced Capital connects you to people who want to see your business succeed. We built a way for communities to lend money to businesses they know and love. CSC is a new way to connect to your customers, discover new friends and transform your business value.

Share your business story with us and we’ll work with you to turn community support into a loan for your growth. CSC provides the technology, marketing and administrative know-how to make borrowing money from the people around you possible.

Get a loan: let’s turn your social capital into financial capital

Hey People: What if you could fund businesses you love and get paid back?

We provide loans to small businesses using capital sourced directly from people in their community. Those businesses run campaigns on this website to raise capital for their loans, and we manage the behind-the-scenes magic that makes this kind of small business lending simple for everyone.

Anyone can take part in funding a loan for a business they choose by purchasing something that we call a Square, a $50 unit of the larger loan we make to a business. Squares are really simple loans and they act like this: $50 loaned and $50 repaid. It’s not a donation. It’s not an investment. It’s a right-sized mechanism for moving money to a business in your community while still getting paid back.

Hey communities: Are you looking for a partner in finance?

Community Sourced Capital’s model works anywhere small businesses are excited to partner with their community of supporters in raising capital.

We provide the platform for businesses in nearly any community to benefit from accessing capital directly from their own network of supporters. That means we’re always on the lookout for community businesses around the country and the people who like to connect them to new opportunities.

Why we started a small business finance company

Our team is passionate about designing and deploying innovative financial systems. Here’s the deal: finance. It’s a big deal. In fact, we think it’s the biggest “deal” for building a more sustainable economy. That’s why we’re tackling this challenge.

We founded CSC after a year of researching what we call sustainable finance. And then we spent a year building a business model that could make finance more sustainable. We’re starting with a product for small businesses because their access to capital is being left behind by the financial system. We can’t live without them.
