Meet Our Volunteers/h2>
We’re an experienced group of entrepreneurs who joined forces and volunteered to build a platform focused on giving underserved businesses free and fair access to PPP funding. Based on our mission and word of mouth, dozens of executives, software developers, graphic designers, engineers, accountants and community advocates rolled up their sleeves and worked around-the-clock from home to create a simple, stress-free way to access much-needed capital during these unprecedented times. We believe all business owners, no matter how small, deserve access to financial guidance, not just those with the right connections. Our team vowed to build the technology needed to level the playing field & serve the underserved.
