It's about more than money

Every single borrower gets access to our Growth Ready program. Custom 1-on-1 coaching and project assistance to help Indiana small businesses take the next step.

Whatever that next step may be.

How do we help?

In short, our Growth Ready program looks like identifying what your primary non-capital business needs are, connecting you with the best equipped person on our team for that need, and then executing projects with you to meet that need.

So, what does this look like?

Good question. We get it. It's hard to believe it's for real but check out some of the real projects we've worked on with clients to get an idea of what we can help you with!

Bankable Growth Ready Photography
Photography

Small business owners are so often behind the scenes working tirelessly so we love when we get to put them in front of the camera and show of just how amazing they are. We use our equipment and our photographers to take high quality pictures for a variety of uses that will elevate our client's brand and more accurately depict just how much of an inspiration they are! Product shoots, staff headshots, website photos, and more.

Bankable Growth Ready Marketing Design
Branding / Design

We want our clients to be proud of the brand that represents the company they have worked so hard to build. Our team can help create polished brands through creative logo design and other marketing material that will help our small businesses put their best foot forward when they tell their story.

Bankable Growth Ready Client Websites
Basic Website Creation

It's not new news at this point that having a functioning and attractive website presence can be make or break for many small businesses. We understand how intimidating and difficult it can be for entrepreneurs to design, create, and maintain a website amidst the long list of other things they need to do. Our team can help create a nice looking and effective website through Squarespace that you will be able to easily update and change!

FAQs about the Growth Ready program

This list is not exhaustive, but here are some of the common questions we hear from borrowers about the Growth Ready program:

How do I qualify for the program?

The Growth Ready program and its project services are available to any of the small businesses who are existing microloan borrowers with Bankable! So, if you have received a loan (no matter the size!) from Bankable, you are eligible to get some help on projects for your business from our team.

How much does this cost?

Bankable does its best to offer projects and programs free of cost to borrowers. There are special cases where a premium service, subscription, event, or project may require financial participation from the borrower if they wish to go above and beyond a typical offering or receive that service for an extended period of time. Each of these instances would occur outside of the standard business assistance offerings that are available to all borrowers.

How do I get started if I'm already a borrower?

It’s easy to get started! Two ways. Either you can reach out to your point of contact at Bankable and express your interest in learning more about Growth Ready and how to take advantage of it. Or you can complete the form on this page to submit a request and get started that way!

Will you do my bookkeeping for me?

Our team does consist of some experts who can answer questions and help you get set up with a better accounting and financial management system, but we do not offer bookkeeping services. We can, however, help connect you with and even help with some of the costs associated with bookkeeping and financial management for your business!

What's the catch?

There is no catch! Bankable is a non-profit with the ultimate goal of seeing our borrowers grow into a business who can return to a bank to receive future funding. Time spent working with business owners is made possible mostly through grant funding so it is not often that we require an out of pocket cost for a project!
