Technical Assistance

Building Capacity


Catalyst offers expertise and resources to small business owners and mission-aligned organizations to help them build capacity and meet their full potential. We also work with public bodies, banks, and credit unions to create and launch innovative funding programs for businesses that don't qualify for conventional loans.  

Small Business Coaching

Technical assistance and coaching for small business owners 


Catalyst is managed by a team of entrepreneurs who understand the challenges faced by small businesses. We provide feedback and advice to our small business borrowers as they develop their strategic and financial plans, and introduce them to our network of legal, accounting, banking and other professionals.

Expanding Lending Platforms

Partnering with banks and credit unions to offer flexible funding options


Catalyst partners with banks, credit unions and other commercial lenders to offer loans and other funding options to small businesses that are not yet qualified for conventional loans. We help banks and credit unions develop risk management strategies that allow them to extend credit to start-ups and small businesses that otherwise wouldn't qualify under current guidelines.
