The Small Business Opportunity Center offers consultations for small businesses looking for access to capital.  We can help identify financing products, recommend financing options, and assist in gathering business loan application documents.  The SBOC can connect persons to relevant capital resources by providing referrals.  We maintain active relationships with lending institutions and programs that provide access to capital.   Contact us at 773-521-5387 to set up an appointment!  

We are currently enrolling for students for Juntos Emprendemos, a 12 week cohort for new and existing business owners designed to enhance marketing, business planning, expansion, social media and access to capital.  This unique program is designed to service the bilingual/monolingual Spanish speaking community of Chicago.  Students will be provided with mentorship, credit building coaching, and  technical assistance.
