The San Juan Regional Loan Fund (formerly Telluride Regional Loan Fund) was designed with entrepreneurs in mind. We help you obtain financing for your early stage/start-up business through low-interest loans. The San Juan Regional Loan Fund is designed to help rural start-up companies get off the ground or scale their operations. It is a $2 million operating working capital loan fund that supports rural business start-up, growth, and job creation and retention in southwest Colorado.
The SJRLF is a joint initiative launched by Telluride Foundation and First Southwest Community Fund, with support from Zoma Foundation.
