What is EDFS?

Posted on: March 31st, 2011 by Laurie Thompson

With their entrepreneurial fortitude and innovative spirit, small businesses are the backbone of the nation’s economy.  Without them, the U.S. will be hard-pressed to be a major force in the global economy.  Small businesses create jobs, bring innovation to the forefront and employ over half of the nation’s private sector workforce.  The Economic Development Finance Service (EDFS) provides research, training and information to publicly funded small business loan funds managed by regional councils nationwide.  The resources and tools in this section will help loan fund managers and others engaged in small business financial and technical assistance develop strategies to increase capital, better manage their loan fund operations, develop strong training programs and share information and resources with their peers.
