Invest Locally

As an investor you invest directly with the business. There are two types of investments that are typically offered by businesses to Fund Milwaukee members: Loans or Equity.

Loans are made with a predetermined schedule for repayment. Minimums for loans vary from $500 to $2500.

Equity is purchased so that the investor owns a percentage of the property. This type of deal may offer cash distribution on a regular schedule. The business owner will typically set a general expectation for payments and supplies a report of the property regularly. Minimums for equity vary from $1,000 to $50,000.

Businesses have received $2.9 million in capital since Fund Milwaukee started.
