A Sports Bar for West Seattle — Let’s launch The Westy

This $25,000 loan helps open a new neighborhood sports bar in West Seattle.

About the campaign

Ask any career bartender, server, or restaurant worker what their endgame is, and each one will tell you to own and operate their own establishment. We are pursuing that dream. We have been hands on from day one; filing permits, designing, tearing down drywall and driving every nail. You aren’t going to find owners more passionate, working to make a living and support their families and pursuing their dreams.

The Westy is a neighborhood gathering place to hangout with your friends, watch sports, and enjoy delicious ballpark style food and drink (there’s also an assortment of games, like skeeball, to keep you entertained). Two and a half years ago, there was nothing but a florist a tanning place and the dry cleaners. Now we will have a nice classy jazz place serving beer and wine, Kenyon Hall with special events, and The Westy for sports and craft cocktails.

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
