Meet Growth Opportunity Partners

The next step in growing your business.

For Growth Opportunity Partners (Growth Opps), it’s all about creating meaningful wage jobs in Northeast Ohio. We work with businesses that are already healthy, thriving and ready to expand further, but for a variety of reasons cannot access traditional bank financing.

We are not a lender of last resort. The businesses we partner with must meet stringent credit underwriting standards and be committed to community development. Growth Opps loans are often used for working capital, acquisition, equipment and machinery and hiring.




We are not confined to specific industries.
We work with small businesses that can create meaningful-wage jobs and make an economic impact economically disadvantaged areas.
We pair access to capital with coaching and mentoring.
We focus on helping our clients attract traditional financing moving forward and retire their debt.
We’re a lender, not a bank.
Because we are mission-driven, we are very different from a traditional bank. Because our models are fundamentally different, we work cooperatively with our banking colleagues.
