What is a Trustee?

Trustees of our university and foundation backed platform are selected individuals and organizations that are helping entrepreneurs in their communities avoid predatory online lenders by connecting them with SourceFunding.org.

Trustees vouch for entrepreneurs and help expedite them through the process. Before recommending an entrepreneur, Trustees are confident that the entrepreneur is creditworthy, expanding their business, and positioned for success.

Trustees are not liable financially or legally for any entrepreneurs they endorse.
