Our New Name

From our origins as the Business Center for New Americans, we have evolved into more than just a business center and a lender. For our clients, we are trusted advisors who support and accompany them along their financial journeys. That’s why, in 2020, we chose a name that reflects how invested we are in each of our clients’ paths forward: Accompany Capital.

Our Mission

At Accompany Capital, we believe in the energy, productivity and impact contributed by entrepreneurs who have come to New York to launch new lives and new businesses. Our mission is to provide them with strategic financial and capacity-building services, working to provide each client with not only the capital they need, but also support and guidance as they move forward to accomplish their goals.

How We Help

We create paths to success and financial self-sufficiency for immigrants & refugees – as well as other fellow New Yorkers – with micro and small business loans, workshops, one-on-one business and marketing training, savings programs, home buying programs, and other resources to support their entrepreneurial journeys.
