“Searching for financing to grow my company took a lot of time away from running my business and each lender handed me a big stack of application forms,” said Ashley Warmington, founder & CEO of award-winning and MWBE-certified Cozy Oasis. “SourceFunding.org on the other hand was able to match me with the right funding from the most trusted source and on the first attempt — saving significant time and money — all with the assistance of a personal Funding Advocate looking out for my best interests and assisting throughout the process and when I ran into issues with the lender.”

"Entrepreneurs and small businesses face significant barriers in accessing the financing needed to grow and create jobs. The antiquated process for obtaining financing creates underserved communities and this is a reality we contend with on a daily basis while supporting entrepreneurs both on campus and in the community. Our work with SourceFunding.org is designed to streamline that process in order to level the playing field for all entrepreneurs."

“Throughout my career working in a community with the highest levels of poverty concentration among African Americans and Latino Americans in the US, I’ve seen how entrepreneurship is a pathway out of poverty leading to sustainable and self sufficient families,” said nationally recognized community activist Mary Alice Smothers. “However, I’ve also seen that so many youth entrepreneurs and long-standing family businesses in our community and in underserved communities all throughout the country struggle to access the low-cost financing needed to grow and create jobs and I’m proud to be working with SourceFunding.org to promote an inclusive financial system that levels the playing field for all entrepreneurs."
