Social Impact

Connecting the dots …

There’s no shortage of capital; it’s just not connected.

Social Impact investing is at record high levels and increasing. Chartered banks and saving institutions have regulatory requirements to help meet the needs of borrowers in all segments of their communities, including those in low and moderate income (LMI) neighborhoods.  Still, capital accessibility for small businesses, including those founded by PEP graduates), is scarce. It’s a paradox of disconnection. Entre Capital was founded to be a connector, and in the process turn re-entry entrepreneurs into qualified borrowers.

The Community Reinvestment Act, first enacted in 1977, remains the cornerstone of financial regulations promulgating the Civil Rights Act, as well as economic community development. Subsequent revisions have introduced measurable criteria and enforcement standards. However, the fundamental constraint is that banks are not relieved from the “safety and soundness” standards of its lending practices.

Bank leverage is available. Our underlying credits require transformation.

Multiplying social impact investment

Social impact investing is purposed for multiplication. Our ambition is to turn each invested dollar into three.

Our first tier capital is comprised of Donor Advisory Funds and other financial contributions. Funding is pooled by recipient tranches. We do not accept deposits or provide banking services.

Partner banks are provided the opportunity to supplement funding in senior secured position. Loan structures are designed to accommodate all applicable CRA requirements: lending activity, community development lending and community development investment. Additionally, we are engaging bank employees to participate in financial literacy and mentorship activities.
