The Flex Fund has signed on to the ShadeFund's partner program!
ShadeFund is a joint project of The Conservation Fund and the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities and provides small loans to promising green entrepreneurs across America. We're helping them get the word out about their new program.
ShadeFund loans range between $5,000 and $50,000 and are provided to green entrepreneurs who work in sustainable forestry and forest products, sustainable or organic farming, eco-tourism, natural food and medicines, biomass, and energy efficiency project. ShadeFund's model enables individuals, companies and foundations to help green entrepreneurs across America grow their businesses and create jobs. Tax deductible contributions to ShadeFund are pooled and lent to qualified small green businesses nationwide. As entrepreneurs repay their loans, those same dollars are recycled to help other entrepreneurs grow their businesses.
So if you're a small green business looking for capital, now you've got yet another option for funding to help grow your business.
