It’s a great time to invest in small business! The CEN-TEX MINORITY BUSINESS EQUITY FUND KICK-START CLUB makes it easy and impactful. The CTMB is the first locally funded financial lending program designed exclusively for minority owned small businesses located in McLennan County. The Kick-Start Club is the exclusive association of CTMB founders. There’s only once chance to be a founder and part of something new, taking a place in history. This is your invite to take advantage of the opportunity.


The Kick-Start Club is open to any donor seeking to invest in the success of minority owned small businesses. The goal is to raise $100,000 by May 30th. Donations of $10,000 or more will received an exclusive gift in appreciation of their generosity. All contributions are tax deductible and will be under the custodial care of TFNB Your Bank for Life. The management and disbursement of all funds will be governed by an independent local Board of Directors in conjunction with the Cen-Tex African American Chamber of Commerce.  Together, the group will allocate funds in grants and microloans designed to offset the potential risk of reduced operations, labor force, or revenue that could severely impact minority entrepreneurship and community welfare.
