Fair and Flexible Funding for Your Small Business

Black Business Loan Fund

Black business loan fund

Historic and systemic barriers have made it more difficult for Black-Owned small businesses to access the capital and resources to start and grow.

According to a 2019 Federal Reserve report on business credit for minority-owned firms, 61% of Black-Owned businesses are either denied or receive less funding than requested on their application compared to 38% of white-owned firms. 
Our goal is to help break this cycle, and make access to capital more attainable for Black-Owned businesses through this low-rate, low-barrier loan - because we believe everyone should be able to access the capital needed to build their small business dream.

TerryJosiah Sharpe | Anthem Music Enterprises
Anthem Music Enterprises is a multimedia enterprise that helps independent creators successfully navigate the music industry through a variety of creative outlets. Offering anything from studio sessions, multimedia space rentals, song and album production, virtual assistant playbook, events & shows, and more. It began with three passionate young men who believe in reimagining the way independent artists create, inspire, and entertain locally. With CEF's funding help, Anthem was able to fill their studio with the necessary equipment to bring this dream to the Colorado Springs and surrounding areas.
