PROGRESSWORKS – A NONPROFIT 501(c)(3) U.S. JOB-CREATION VENTURE FUND

We raise capital through Memberships, Sponsorships, Donations, and Investments into our Funds.

We deploy that raised capital into qualified small business transactions with the sole purpose of job creation and retention.

Any return on invested capital is redeployed into more job creation.

ProgressWorks’ vision is to impact the growth of employment through targeted investment, strategic partnering, and resources that reduce the challenges small businesses face when seeking job creation capital.

How do I get ProgressWorks to consider an investment in my company?

Becoming a Member is the first step.  Meeting ProgressWorks Executives an Members is the next, and the Expo is a great place to do such.  Entering the PitchFest  and/or exhibiting  gives you that much more exposure and consideration.

What kinds of companies does ProgressWorks consider for investment?

Whether a start-up or existing business, ProgressWorks will consider companies in any industry, as long as they can demonstrate that they will either create new jobs, or retain existing jobs with the capital they receive.
