Il Corvo’s new restaurant “Pizzeria Gabbiano”

This $30,000 loan helps fund Il Corvo’s new Seattle pizza restaurant in Pioneer Square.

About the campaign

Mike Easton of Il Corvo Pasta fame is up to something good, and YOU can be a part of it. Here’s the scoop: Mike and his wife Victoria have noodled together a Roman street pizza concept the likes of which Pioneer Square will be eagerly drooling over soon. Easton sourced a 150 year-old sourdough starter and has been cultivating it into his own magical bitches’ brew over the past several months.

If you don’t know Il Corvo, Easton’s flagship daytime-only restaurant, you’re going to want to get all up in its business pronto. Recently voted Seattle’s Restaurant of the Year by Eater, Il Corvo shares ingredient-driven, small-batch pasta using traditional Italian handmade methods with an intimate dining roomful of regular devotees daily. Easton is a collector of vintage pasta-making tools, and many of his treasures are on display in the restaurant, both for use and mood. Many diners remark on how stepping into Il Corvo for lunch is like stepping into a trattoria in Italy without the hefty price of the plane ticket, and Easton is crafting the Roman pizzeria menu and vibe with the same ambience in mind.

Community Sourced Capital helps small businesses access capital from people in their community

Most small businesses cannot access funding under $100,000 from traditional sources like banks. Currently, our country's financial system is set up to provide financing in larger amounts, to larger companies.

Providing capital to community-based businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Helping them is critical to the resiliency of both local communities and the national economy

While many online lenders have emerged to serve businesses needing less than $100,000 in funding, they often charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or even 50 percent. Businesses using Community Sourced Capital can access zero-interest loans from their community, paying only $50 per month in membership fees to use the platform, making it an affordable and sustainable way to circulate capital in local 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.
