Equity Statement

At Mountain BizWorks, equity means actively supporting individuals where they are and cultivating diversity by eliminating barriers and increasing access to resources for all entrepreneurs across WNC, with a particular focus on promoting racial equity

Our commitment to equity involves acknowledging the history of financial exclusion and predatory lending faced by marginalized, under-resourced, underrepresented groups, and empowering them through tailored learning programs, lending, coaching, and access to opportunities.

As an organization, we strive to advance representation, to be accountable for our actions, and to serve as a role model in the small business sector by educating ourselves about justice, equity, diversity, inclusion and the communities we serve. By weaving and integrating these principles into our work, we aim to open doors and foster an equitable, vibrant ecosystem that benefits the entire region.

Why Mountain BizWorks
