Access to Capital Directory for Black Entrepreneurs

A comprehensive database designed to help Black entrepreneurs learn about sources of funding, including equity, loans and grants.

If you’re a Black business owner—whether you’re a startup or a long-time entrepreneur—you know that getting the money you need to operate and grow your business is critical to success. But finding those funds isn’t always easy—and it isn’t easy to tell which type of funding will work for your situation. That’s why Bank of America and Seneca Women created this Access to Capital Directory. It puts at your fingertips hundreds of organizations providing funding for Black-owned businesses across the U.S.

A good place to start is to learn how to use this Directory and to learn more about the types of capital included by visiting the About page. You can also start your search using the Search Tool below.
