Business Impact NW

Business Impact NW works together with you, providing the coaching, classes and capital you need to successfully launch and grow your business.


Business Impact NW is a nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) dedicated to serving underbanked entrepreneurs. We provide coaching, classes, and access to capital to community small businesses, with an emphasis on working with traditionally underserved populations.

Business Impact NW promotes long-term positive economic change through financial services, business advice and training. We serve startups as well as existing businesses, and are dedicated to helping underserved entrepreneurs at every stage in their business growth.

Business Impact NW's objective is to provide financial and technical support to entrepreneurs in economically marginalized communities who would not otherwise have access to financial services. Our lending guidelines are more flexible than traditional banks because of our community impact mission. While careful in our decision-making process, Business Impact NW is able to take considered risks on underserved small businesses in order to achieve this mission.

Our loan department offers lending services in Washington State, Oregon, and Alaska. We offer business support services (training, coaching and classes) in Washington State, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska through various technical assistance programs, including the Washington Women's Business Center (WBC), Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC), Food Business Resource Center (FBRC) and Loan Readiness Center (LRC).
