Ascendus believes in the bold vision of achieving financial ascension for all. Our mission is to empower low-to-moderate income business owners with access to capital and financial education. For over 30 years, we’ve provided small business owners – primarily BIPOC, women and immigrants – with the tools to move up, improve their lives, care for their families, and contribute to their communities. Since our inception, we’ve dispersed over $255 million in capital to over 25,300 small business owners.
