Entrepreneurs have a lot on their plates. So, it’s extremely valuable to them to partner with financial institutions that understand their needs and can support their growth.

As you know, AVANA Capital is a member of the AVANA Family of Companies, a member of the 2022 Inc. 5000. As a collective, AVANA is focused on delivering “capital for a better tomorrow.” We support American businesses and provide impactful, socially-driven investment opportunities that preserve wealth and create growth.

Here we’re breaking down our family tree so you know how we support both budding and seasoned entrepreneurs.

We at AVANA Capital have aided small and medium-sized businesses in the United States for over two decades.

Our focus is on customized commercial real estate loans. This includes construction loans, bridge loans and hospitality loans. We also help niche industries, such as cannabis and renewable energy. AVANA Capital is dedicated to helping business owners discover the financing method that is right for their business.


Extensia Financial is simply the best credit union service organization (CUSO) out there. They partner with credit unions and brokers in the United States to support entrepreneurs by originating and servicing commercial real estate (CRE) loans.

With decades of experience behind them and a focus on customer service and long-standing relationships, Extensia Financial allows for customized and competitive financing.


LendThrive is a transparent and painless platform that supports entrepreneurs in most industries. They do so by offering fixed-rate small business loans of up to $150,000 that can be accessed in as little as 24 hours.

Additionally, LendThrive’s financing is available without hidden fees, prepayment penalties, front-loaded interest expenses and a hard credit pull for pre-qualification.

All of this gives business owners more flexibility and liquidity to use their loans for:

  • Working capital
  • Repayment of existing debt
  • To finance a growth opportunity
  • To provide immediate access to capital while another, potentially larger loan is in process

EqualSeat provides a way for individual investors to access institutional-quality commercial debt investments through its intuitive and easy-to-use platform. Essentially, they’re democratizing access to investments in small business debt.

EqualSeat has created an excellent opportunity for entrepreneurs to easily and quickly invest in options that offer reliable monthly returns. Equally, entrepreneurs can utilize EqualSeat to boost their retirement savings as an alternative to volatile stock market investing.
