Small Business Loans

Our small business loan products are specifically targeted for business owners that are "under-banked" at traditional financial institutions. We provide flexible loan capital to start-up and existing small businesses in NYC.

Group Training

Our group trainings are to empower small business owners with the necessary business tools to succeed. We offer a diverse range of in-person classes and virtual webinars such as credit reporting, business planning, digital marketing, financial projections and much more.

Our business advisory team is to coach and give business tools to help with your decisions. We also have a roster of professional experts such as Certified Public Accountants (CPA’s) and attorneys to provide pro bono advice. Our free 1:1 services are available in English, Chinese, Korean and Spanish.

“We didn’t know about all of these things (loan products, training, workshops) that are available. They have helped us to apply for small business loans. And this is very, very big. They helped us to get certified as a Minority and/or Women-owned Business Enterprise. We even closed a loan during the pandemic!”

“Renaissance care about small businesses, especially immigrants. We don’t know the culture and everything, They are always helpful, [helped us] work through everything little bit by little bit, and explained everything very detailed to you. Without their help, I don’t think we can stay and survived (the pandemic) until now.”

“I don’t have a lease and I’m a micro-business, but the business advisor from Renaissance was so patient, and professional. They helped me a lot. A great idea was behind Renaissance. It’s a wonderful institution that helps small businesses, like me.”
