    In order for my business to survive (the pandemic), I needed to create and execute an ongoing digital marketing strategy to generate new business clients. Growth Capital helped me secure a loan for more than $16,000… and I’ve since been able to hire a digital marketing agency. Growth Capital was extremely customer-focused, friendly and accurate; I highly recommend!

    As a relationship manager with PNC since 2002, I have had a relationship with Growth Capital for many years and have done many transactions with them. Their knowledge and accessibility are unmatched, and their communication with bankers is excellent. Every business should consider the advantages of 504 financing for their owner-occupied property, even if they qualify for conventional financing. Promoting the Community Advantage loan has been a big help to clients who are having trouble getting traditional bank financing. My clients have been happy with me providing options. They have excellent customer service and get back to you right away to help you through the process. I absolutely would recommend Growth Capital.
