|AFI One of Many Possibilities for Funding
AFI is essentially a matchmaker between firms raising capital and private investors. But what if the needs of the firm could be better met some other way?
In addition to building the AFI infrastructure, we've also been creating an "eco-system" of food finance and business
support organizations here in Austin.
provides zero-interest small dollar loans for social good companies.
One of our early deals was with such a strong business (what we call "bankable") that we referred them to a local bank, who is in the process of drawing up a low-interest loan.
We worked with another on their business plan, which helped them get a term sheet from a non-AFI private investor for the full amount of their raise!
We're happy for both. Our intent is that great people get their cool businesses funded. So if you are, or know, a cool local sustainable food business,
talk to us
... maybe we can help!
