Our stories and learnings as we steward new funding instruments in Rural Colorado.


Tools to help others utilize these new funding structures.

Alternative Capital Summit

The first-ever national event focused on new funding structures.

GCVF Alternative Capital Initiative

Pioneering flexible growth capital solutions for rural Colorado founders and beyond…

According to the Kauffman Foundation, 1% of companies in America raise venture capital and 18% use bank loans. That means 81% of entrepreneurs are unserved by traditional capital markets.

As funders, our job is to provide products that serve our customers, founders. There are amazing businesses to be built within that 81% if they had access to growth capital that fit their circumstances. In fact, we’ve found these founders all across Colorado.

We need funding instruments to fit our founders – not the other way around.
