Advantage Capital Partners was founded in 1992 with a mission to generate superior investment returns while bringing businesses, technologies and jobs to communities that have historically lacked access to investment capital.
In partnership with state and federal economic development programs, we have invested more than $1.7 billion; helped to create more than 27,000 jobs; and facilitated the flow of more than $8.6 billion in follow-on capital into the companies and regions where we invest.
To date, we have invested in more than more than 500 companies located in underserved communities in 15 states.
In states where we have dedicated our resources, entrepreneurs and small business advocates speak to their experiences:
