My neighborhood is better than yours


Invest in the small businesses that you love in your neighborhood

Smallknot lets you invest in the small businesses in your community in exchange for goods, services, special perks and benefits. We work exclusively with local businesses that are looking to expand and grow but need a little extra capital to get there. Maybe your favorite coffee shop wants to build a new back patio, or your favorite pizza place needs a new oven. For a lot of local businesses, even very successful ones, projects like these get put on hold or never happen because of a lack of access to capital. Banks don't lend to the smallest businesses in your neighborhood, and credit cards are costly and expensive. With Smallknot, you can help fund a project in your neighborhood and get back real value paid back in kind and at a premium.

Small business finance is broken.

This is about a broken system. The financial system just isn't built for the smallest businesses that make our neighborhoods special. The places we spend our lives. Small business lenders can’t make enough money from Mom ‘n Pop unless they squeeze them to death on interest rates or just ignore them altogether.

We think there's a better way.

We think it's up to all of us to build the communities we want to live in. With Smallknot, you can chip in a little bit of money to help a local business achieve projects that will spur growth and help your community prosper.

You already eat local and shop local. With Smallknot, now you can invest local.
