As a founding sponsor of the Small Business Development Center (www.capitalregionsbdc.com) and sponsor of Entrepreneur's Unlimited radio show (www.haneybiz.com) we appreciate that there is no one-size-fits-all model. Whether your company has 2 or 200 people, no other bank has our experience in giving you the insight, exposure and feedback critical to getting started.

Let us put our relationships with local investors - from angels to venture capital partners – to work for you. Because we understand their strategies, as well as your business model, we can pair you with the right potential investor and increase your chances of successful financing.

Whether you need an accountant, attorney, real estate agent or recruiter, we'll connect you with local experts to ensure you hit the ground running.
