Skopos means purpose.

Humanized finance for purpose-driven businesses.

We’re on a mission to connect business owners to their business finances,  build a manageable financial system and show them how the power of numbers can inform (and transform) their business.

Before starting Skopos, I worked with hundreds of business owners to navigate their expansion projects, leases, and loans, as well as handling a national recession, blackouts, hurricanes and, most recently, the pandemic. I spent seven years as an SBA underwriter where I declined too many loan requests from hard-working businesses. I’d spend time explaining why their loan request was declined, but still felt like I was part of a system that was keeping them down. If they only knew what I knew—how to properly prepare for and present a request for financing—their outcomes might have been different. 

 

So I set out to share my knowledge. I launched Skopos in 2016 with a mission to engage more business owners and encourage financial literacy. In a world that heavily favors large corporations, Skopos is committed to empowering community-based businesses to achieve their financial goals, starting with understanding the numbers, creating effective strategies, and preparing for the right kind of capital opportunities. 

 

What I do at Skopos—purpose, in Greek—is not a job, but a joy.  I love how small businesses reflect an entrepreneurial spirit, give essential character to communities, and offer a unique pathway to prosperity.
