Connect UP! Integrated Capital Fund

The ConnectUP! Fund is a human-centered, integrated capital fund (consisted of debt, equity, and grants) with an objective of addressing economic justice in access to blended capital to social enterprises led by people from marginalized communities. In recognition that there are numerous systemic factors influencing business development, the ConnectUP! Fund evaluates Opportunity Zone-qualified businesses in areas such as (but not exclusively) financial inclusion, sustainable energy, women’s empowerment, and community development (rural, urban, and tribal). This fund will have an intentional commitment to self-determined, vibrant communities and thriving ecosystems led by people of color.
