Do you have a vision for a business based on your artistic talents? Do you already have a creative business you are ready to expand to the next level?
The Loan Fund started CreativeFund to offer opportunities to help arts and cultural entrepreneurs launch or grow creative businesses in New Mexico.
Sparked with a seed investment from the Kresge and Surdna Foundations,* CreativeFund provides free workshops and one-on-one coaching sessions specifically for creative entrepreneurs who want to learn strategies to make their businesses more successful.
In addition, start-up and expansion loans may be available at favorable terms for creative entrepreneurs who cannot or choose not to pursue conventional banking loans.

*The Loan Fund is very pleased to be one of seven national recipients of an investment through the joint initiative by the Kresge and Surdna Foundations "Catalyzing Culture and Community through CDFIs." The initiative is intended to help support and expand CDFIs’ involvement in integrating arts and culture into local revitalization work, an approach to community development known as creative placemaking.
