Community Venture Network (CVN)
The Community Venture Network was founded in 1991
to foster a relationship between growing businesses and rural
communities throughout the Midwest. It was bought by Justin Erickson in 2005 and is now a part of the Rural Development Alliance. CVN works on behalf of
communities throughout the Midwest to help them form relationships with
businesses that might otherwise not find them.
The Community Venture Network combines a broad range of
sophisticated public and private financing tools to create vital links
between growth oriented communities and expanding businesses. Our program has resulted in
meeting the expansion needs of many businesses while helping communities
create hundreds of new jobs across the Midwest.
The Community Venture Network is dedicated to successfully
facilitating your company’s strategic growth. We manage a consortium of
Midwest communities seeking to promote development within their
communities. The communities we represent have a range of resources at
their disposal, including business development loan and grant programs.
We help facilitate the entire expansion/relocation project between
company and community.
