A letter from our founder, John Souza.

Red Quote

In my opinion, there is no part of the US economy more important than
small businesses

The reality is, that over my career working in leadership roles on Wall Street and at some of the largest banks in the world, I have seen the sad truth:

Small Businesses are often the first forgetten.

They are simply too small to support and too many to count
even though these businesses, in aggregate, are responsible for the majority of the income American families count on each month..

For the big companies, everything’s about the bottom line.

And I’ve seen how little care and respect
small businesses get, simply because
they are small.

they are so often overlooked, unsupported, and under-funded

by the people, companies, and government agencies that have the ability to make a real impact for them.

I remember, when I was a kid, my father actually knew the people who worked at many of the local businesses by name.

He’d say to me, ‘Let’s go see Mr. Henry at the bank’, it was a big deal, and when we walked in, there he was, Mr. Henry. I saw all these small business owners as rockstars of the community.

Back then, that was just the norm. You knew the baker, the dry cleaner, and the cashier at the grocery store.. You knew all these people by name. And you cared.

Imagine if we lived in a world where everyone
cared again about relationships in business...

About Mr. Henry at the bank? About Joe at the Auto shop? Or Ms Debra at the dry cleaners?

If we saw these owners as people and valued relationships and not just numbers on a loan application, how much BETTER would this economy and this world work for ALL OF US?

For the last 23 years, I’ve been on a personal mission:
