Since 1981, BrightBridge Capital has been committed to achieving positive economic and community development outcomes by providing loans and technical assistance to business owners who are unable to obtain conventional funding needed to start or grow their businesses.


BrightBridge Capital

BrightBridge Capital offers loan solutions and technical assistance to businesses and community organizations to create jobs, commercial goods and services, housing and community assets.


Small Business Administration Loans

 These programs finance for-profit businesses only. Our SBA products are Community Advantage and 504 loan programs. Community Advantage loans up to $250,000, can be used for working capital, fixed assets, and debt refinancing. The 504 loan program finances projects from $300,000 to $20,000,000 in partnership with commercial lenders, and is used for fixed asset financing.


Small Business Loan Program

For nonprofit agencies and for-profit businesses. Our small business loan programs provide businesses located in designated areas and/or owned by members of an underserved population with access to financing. Funds can be used for most business purposes.


New Markets Tax Credit Program

The New Markets Tax Credit is a federal program that aims to stimulate business investment in low-income communities via a federal tax credit. Funded projects generate significant and measurable community outcomes, for the communities in which they are located.


Technical Assistance

In addition to helping businesses bridge financing gaps, we provide technical assistance to help business owners develop their business plans and explore their financing options, including access to affordable sources of funding.
