Bridge built by Citi is a digital meeting place connecting small and medium-sized businesses looking for loans up to $10 million with regional, local and community banks. Bridge built by Citi uses technology to improve access for WBEs to lenders in their region, enabling borrowers to interact with lenders beyond those that have a physical location nearby through a single, quick and easy online request.

By connecting borrowers with more lenders, the platform empowers WBE businesses with access, choice and convenience as well as capital to grow.

Webinar participants will receive an exclusive first-hand look at the Bridge built by Citi program, including how to access it, the scope, and its benefits. The webinar also will include a Banker panel to share advice on bank financing and allow WBEs to ask questions about access to capital and other related financial topics.

Bridge built by Citi provides:

  • Diverse and efficient access to capital including Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs) and various community banks
  • Reach to many banks with just 1 loan request, at no cost
  • A financial technology experience with relationship banking at its core
  • Connection for WBE borrowers with regional & community relationship banks
