Connecting you to resources and capital solutions

Our sole purpose for existence is to help entrepreneurs like you start or grow your business by providing the resources and capital solutions critical to business success. We believe that entrepreneurs who leverage the limited resources available to them are the ones who ultimately succeed.

Business Loans up to $50k

Loans of up to $50K are available for fixed terms of up to five years. GNEC encourages participation with banks to make loans to eligible borrowers.  GNEC welcomes the opportunity to work with your banker.

Technical Assistance

GNEC specializes in needs-based counseling and technical assistance to businesses at all stages of development. The applicant’s business counselors provide one-on-one needs assessment, business planning, technology assistance, marketing and management guidance as well as access to needed financing and other business development resources through its microloan fund and extensive partner linkages.

Partnership Programs

GNEC has facilitated its work with multiple methods of community outreach and program marketing. GNEC primarily disseminates program information through local linkage partners throughout the target areas to representatives of local service agencies, community programs, community leaders, banks, parent organizations, faith-based institutions, merchant’s associations, chambers of commerce and advocacy groups (i.e. disability).

Access to capital is often the biggest challenge facing entrepreneurs and business owners. At GNEC, we provide loans from $1,000 to $50,000. Individuals looking for more than $50,000, can be connected to our lending partners who have the ability to loan up to $2 million. No matter your situation, we will work with you to find the right solution just for you. Our support doesn’t end at the loan closing, we provide ongoing business mentoring and counseling services to help you stay on track to meet your business goals.
