Financing

Financing Assistance

Our team brings a wealth of financial expertise to the table to help you identify your financial needs and navigate finding and securing the appropriate funding to launch your startup or expand your operation.  

By Wyoming state statute, the Wyoming Business Council is unable to loan or grant state funds directly to a private business or individual and all of our loan programs require a partner member or institution (local economic development organization, community, commercial lender, etc.) to be involved.

State Small Business Credit Initiative

SSBCI – Wyoming Venture Capital Funds

The Wyoming Business Council (WBC) is applying to the US Treasury for the State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) on behalf of the state of Wyoming. This program allocates just over $58 million to Wyoming to create specialized small business access to capital programs.

Wyoming Business Council intends to devote $35 million to a Direct Investment Program called the Wyoming Co-Investment Fund and $23 million to a Fund of Funds Program called the Wyoming Fund of Funds. We actively look to provide greater access to capital for industries and individuals, including women and minority entrepreneurs. Our goal is to expand and build a robust startup ecosystem across Wyoming leveraging public and private sector assets.

Wyoming Fund of Funds

Approach: SSBCI funds will be invested into other underlying funds which will be generally focused on early-stage or seed-stage investments.

Wyoming Co-Investment Fund

Approach: SSBCI funds will be invested alongside a lead institutional or strategic investor focusing on later scale-up or growth stage investments, but WBC will play a lead investor role.
