Small Business Week

When you think of an NMTC project, you might think of a $15 million health clinic, a mixed-use historic renovation project, or a large manufacturing facility. But the NMTC supports quite a few small businesses and entrepreneurs, both directly (through direct financing) and indirectly (through real estate financing of incubators and creative shared space). Below are a few of those stories:


Small Business Loan Funds

Loans under $4 million, often through a revolving fund

MEDC Revolving Loan Fund

Milwaukee Economic Development Corporation and PNC Bank
