Who We Are
Our goal is to build wealth for all stakeholders in our portfolio companies – owners, management, and employees. We employ a hands-on, value-added investing approach that involves both investing capital as well as working closely with management to insure that capital is deployed in an optimal manner for the successful execution of a long term growth strategy.
Pacific Community Ventures, an innovative nonprofit organization, is affiliated with three double bottom line investment funds (Pacific Community Management). Our investment funds provide capital and hands-on guidance to high growth California businesses that bring significant economic gains to lower-income employees as well as deliver exceptional financial returns to business owners and to our investors.
Pacific Community Ventures’ Small Business Advising Integrated Lending Loan Fund (SAIL Fund) provides debt capital and resources to high growth Bay Area businesses that create jobs and opportunities in lower income communities. PCV integrates this debt capital with hands-on, pre-loan technical assistance and post-loan business advice throughout the full term of the loan to ensure the long-term success of our borrowers.
Background and History
The Small Business Advising Integrated Lending Loan Fund (SAIL Fund) was born out of Pacific Community Ventures’ commitment to providing small businesses with the capital and resources they need to grow and create jobs and opportunities in lower income communities.
PCV launched the SAIL Fund in 2012 as one of twenty organizations selected to participate in the Small Business Administration’s Intermediary Lending Pilot Program (ILPP). PCV is one of the first organizations to fully integrate pre-loan technical assistance, debt capital and post-funding business advising through the full term of the loan, to support small business owners and ensure that capital is deployed effectively to yield profitable business growth and sustainable job creation.
