Who We Are
When PCV’s co-founders started the organization in 1998, they saw the capital and advice going to venture-backed tech start-ups and knew that businesses on Main Street would benefit from the same integrated support. The SAIL Fund employs this theory by combining affordable small business loans with expert-level advice from PCV Advisors. This combination of services ensures the long-term success of our borrowers, and prepares them to attract additional capital when they are ready for further growth.

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.
