Grant supports technology enhancements for PeopleFund client training and education
Austin, Texas – Texas Certified Development Company (TxCDC), a proven leader in Small Business Administration 504 lending and New Markets Tax Credits allocations, awarded a grant to PeopleFund to create the TxCDC Technology Lab, a designated space designed to assist individuals who are interested in starting or growing a small business. PeopleFund will use these funds to purchase much-needed hardware and software to improve community workshops and business education curriculums. Not only will the TxCDCTechnology Lab further the hands-on training offered to PeopleFund clients and the central Texas community, but it will also enable the organization to offer online courses and materials to rural populations across the state.
As a veteran of the banking industry, TxCDC’s President Suzanna Caballero understands the importance of helping clients become successful business owners. “PeopleFund embraces the concept of client training and education to help business owners succeed,” she said. “With this $25,000 grant, we are investing in PeopleFund’s ability to better train and support Austin-area businesses.”
“We are so grateful to TxCDC for their support in helping build our clients’ business skills,” Gary Lindner, PeopleFund president and CEO, said. “As a non-profit, we rely on strategic partnerships and support. To have Suzanna and her organization step forward is a tribute to her leadership and vision about what it takes to grow Texas businesses and the economy.”
