INVESTMENT & FUNDING

A core component of the services at ACCESS is providing capital access and financial education to underrepresented businesses in the market. As a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), our partner Piedmont Business Capital to date, has deployed over $200,000 in capital to minority owned firms through the ACCESS Center.
 

CERTIFICATION ASSISTANCE

To date ACCESS has helped over 70 local firms with minority and woman-owned certification assistance. ACCESS has secured strategic partnerships and conducted certification workshops with the following agencies:

  • North Carolina Department of Administration (HUB)

  • NC Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) 

  • Small Business Administration (SBA)

 

ACCESS highly encourages minority-owned and woman-owned businesses to complete the necessary certifications so that they can compete more successfully for state, federal, local government, and commercial contracts.

 

 

"Thank you ACCESS for your assistance. Our firm  is finally HUB Certified!! "
