Accelerate Employee Ownership

Facilitating and financing the future of small business

Accelerate Employee Ownership supports businesses to transition to employee ownership.

Businesses that work with Project Equity to transition to employee ownership are eligible to apply for flexible and affordable financing through Accelerate Employee Ownership.

Transitioning businesses receive expert advice and support from Project Equity and specialized small business financing through Shared Capital.

This initiative was launched in 2019 with a seed investment from the Quality Jobs Fund, a collaborative project of the New World Foundation and the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco.
