U.S. Treasury SSBCI Program

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 includes a $10 billion reauthorization of the State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI), a Treasury-administered federally funded economic development program intended to increase state capacity to support small business “access to capital” programs. “SSBCI 2.0” will provide the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development with at least $82 million of federal funds. Join Cromwell-Schmisseur, a consulting firm that served as technical advisors to the U.S. Treasury for programs funded by SSBCI 1.0, to understand the potential for Kentucky entrepreneurship through SSBCI 2.0.

Join us as we sit down with investors to learn how they operate, process investment decisions, and manage their portfolio. They’ll take us through their communication and referral preferences, what gets their attention, what they look for in an opportunity beyond thesis and criteria match, the intricacies of their evaluation process that aren’t obvious, and share insights on what they see for the future of getting funded.
