Through our education and resource efforts, Bridgeway Capital increases our borrowers’ chances of success and contributes to the growth of the economy.
It is our goal that such assistance will lead our successful borrowers to graduate to conventional financing, freeing our resources
for new loans.
Entrepreneurs need more than just financing to succeed. Traditionally, community development financial institutions (CDFIs) offer training and technical assistance to increase borrower capacity and mitigate risk. Bridgeway Capital’s educational opportunities — along with flexible financing — help to maximize the potential success of a small business.
While the Business Education program below is primarily focused on our borrowers, other small business owners and entrepreneurs can take advantage of opportunities on our Calendar of Events, articles and links in the Resource Library, and the various offerings of our Education Partners.
