Capital Access Center at the SBDC

The Capital Access Center is a free loan consulting service that partners with the Kansas SBDC centers.


Loan Eligibility/Structure: The CAC will take a client loan request and review eligibility for various financing options. This review will also determine the best combination & structure of financing options available, usually isn’t just one-size fits all. Test Review & Lending Options: The CAC will work with you to run mock underwriting scenarios to uncover the best options available. The CAC will then assist in finding Financial Partners that fit the applicable situation. Guidance throughout the Process: CAC will provide ongoing assistance to help you get approved, saving you time and frustration. This assistance allows you to ask “Banker type” questions to the CAC that you might not feel comfortable asking the actual lender, helping ensure you are being treated fairly. Training/Education: In addition to the one-on-one personal services offered above, the CAC also conducts live classroom/webinar format training. Visit our upcoming training, as well as our library of past training classes, at If you are an organization that could benefit from this type of training, but tailored a little more specific to your group, please contact the CAC to explore collaboration. If you are a Lender and would like to ensure we are aware of your products and services, please contact us today.
