Access To Capital

Access to capital refers to an individual's or organization's ability to obtain resources for starting or expanding a business or funding projects. There are several ways to access capital, depending on your specific needs and circumstances. It is important to carefully evaluate options, have a clear business plan, and consider the cost associated with obtaining funds. At the San Pablo EDC we have partner banks that we work with to assist individuals in accessing capital and work with them on a weekly basis to ensure our clients are aware of funding sources available to the small business community.
