Excelsior Growth Fund in the News - Forbes

“EGF doesn’t think business owners should have to sacrifice high-interest loan rates in order to secure capital,” says Women @ Forbes contributor Autumn Adeigbo. Earlier this month, Excelsior Growth Fund (EGF) was featured in “Non-Traditional Funders Give Entrepreneurs A Leg Up” on Forbes. In the article, Adeigbo points out that 27% of businesses aren’t able to secure the funding necessary to run their business. We’re excited to be listed as one of the non-traditional lenders that provide alternative loans when traditional bank loan financing is not an option.

Adeigbo is no stranger to searching for startup capital. The Women @ Forbes contributor also founded her own fashion company with the vision of impacting the lives of women both in Africa and the United States. Her designs can be seen on magazines such as Vogue, Glamour, WWD and many more. In addition, Adeigbo has been named “Fashion’s Next” by Uptown, Marie Claire and ESSENCE Magazines. You can follow her entrepreneurial journey on her bi-weekly column on Forbes.
