How We Help Businesses Thrive

Capital Investment
We provide capital in the form of assets that are needed for the business to function. This allows the investments to be backed by these assets, which belong to Mutualism while the business raises enough to pay back the principal.
Empowering Ownership
Once the assets are paid back, ownership of the asset is transferred to the investee. Mutualism’s model of “asset-backed investment” mitigates risk for our partners.
Business Consulting
Our hands-on consulting ensures that we properly equip our partners with skills for years of success. We approach consulting through an integrated approach that addresses a business needs to drive sustainability, community engagement, product quality, marketing and sales.
Continued Support
Mutualism builds relationships with its partners to ensure long-term success. Our mission to foster community growth guides our strategy. We provide ongoing support for partners to improve business operations and efficiency.
