Video: Momentus Capital’s Senate Testimony Champions Community Advantage for Small Business Support
Momentus Capital’s Chief of External Affairs, Robert Villarreal, recently testified in front of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship about improving access to capital in disinvested communities through the Small Business Administration (SBA) Community Advantage (CA) loan program.

These lenders intentionally support underestimated community members, businesses, and organizations – with an emphasis on assisting people of color, women-owned businesses, and startups.
