We Believe...

Small business success knows no boundaries! We understand the unique challenges faced by Small Business Owners around the world, and our mission is to ensure that every SMB has the opportunity to thrive and prosper.

The SBGP was designed to provide accessible, relevant, and localized support to Small Business Owners worldwide. We believe that empowering SMBs with the right tools and resources can unlock their full potential, regardless of their geographical location or cultural background.

Our track record speaks for itself. We have witnessed countless success stories from Small Business Owners who have embraced SBGP and experienced remarkable growth. With our proven methodologies and localized approach, we are confident that you too can take your business to new heights.

We CAN Change The Economy, One Small Business At A Time.

When someone is ready to take action and has resources, support, and structure wrapped around them – they CAN hit their goals. The Silver Lining Action Plan™ (SLAP™) has a meaningful impact on small business owners’ success and profitability. Scaling this success through the Small Business Growth Program (SBGP), we have the power to reduce poverty, increase job creation, develop strong communities, and create a more just economy.

The attributes that we so often celebrate in Small Business Owners rarely reflect what it actually takes to grow a business. Based on the significant data collected through our SaaS platform, we know that focus, discipline, and accountability create success. These are not things you need to be born with – these are traits any human can develop with the right strategy and support.

We need to consciously foster a strong sense of pride in all Small Business Owners. The story of business ownership has become focused on raising millions, selling for billions, and building apps. The backbone of the economy, however, is and always will be small business owners. They are the ones who create jobs, pay taxes, contribute to their communities, and yet too often are overlooked.

The old-school model for business owners focuses on getting rich at all costs – and then, once rich, giving money away. That model is not working. We must instill a new sense of responsibility among business leaders to use their businesses as a tool for justice.

The reality is that for those of us lucky enough to be born into any privilege, the hard work we invest gets outsized rewards. We don’t have to feel guilty about our privilege – but we must use it to create businesses and opportunities that result in an equal chance of success for everyone.

SLAPloans

SLAPcapital™ has created SLAPloans, which are underwritten based 100% on SLAPdata (the performance and behaviors of SMBs as reported through their SLAP™ profile).  No credit scores, financial statements, collateral, or personal guarantees are required.  SLAPcapital™ gives Small Business Owners a chance to access capital without the bias and flaws in the current capital systems.
