ABOUT US

Welcome to Growth Opps
~ A Place Where the Playing Field Becomes Level

We are in business to support yours. Whether by consultations, capital deployment, or sharing our network resources, we work with strong management teams, business owners, and community leaders, to help build stronger communities. With a particular focus on lower income communities and minority populations, we strive to make capital markets work in a way that uniquely fits our clients. In addition, we advocate for policy and systems change, to remove the barriers of racial bias and discrimination, which has prevented broader participation in free markets and places. At Growth Opps, we are here to serve you, our clients.

Our goal is to support the growing vitality of lower income communities by improving the quality of life for lower income persons. At Growth Opps, we continually seek methods to provide the highest quality financial, economic, and community development resources to our clients and the communities we serve.
