DC Logos-1-1

A new way to raise capital in Washington, D.C.

SMBX has partnered with Washington, D.C to support small businesses. Now you can raise capital with no origination fees through the D.C. Rebuild Bond Program.

In partnership with
The Rebuild Bond Program:
Empowering D.C. small businesses.

Through our D.C. Rebuild Bond Program, eligible small businesses can apply to issue Small Business Bonds™ to their community with no origination fees. 

Skip the bank and sell Bonds directly to the general public, reducing borrowing costs and winning customer loyalty.

How Raising Works on SMBX

A Small Business Bond™ is like a loan, but instead of paying your monthly principal and interest to a bank, you're paying it to your community of investors.



Submit your documents to make sure your business qualifies. Our underwriting team reviews in 48 hours or less. If everything looks good, we work with you to set the terms of your raise and get ready to launch!

Group 2


Your offering goes live on SMBX and people start buying Bonds in your business. Our marketing team works with you one-on-one to craft a unique plan to get the word out to your community.



Once your offering closes, you receive your capital! You then pay fixed monthly payments of principal and interest, which we distribute to your investors. Easy as 1-2-3.

Doing a bond raise through SMBX has been rewarding on so many levels. Not only did we achieve our raise goal, but we have attracted new guests while strengthening our already strong sense of community from our long-time regulars and guests. Working with the SMBX team was a great experience, with regular communication and schedules to keep everyone updated and on track including plenty of support & resources which ultimately made our raise a success. I strongly encourage small businesses to work with SMBX.
