Business Education Series

Client: Northern Initiatives

Northern Initiatives is a Community Development Financial Institution. They provide loans and business services to small business owners and entrepreneurs who create jobs and enable communities to thrive. Being mission-driven sets them apart. Their loan programs and business services empower them to find funding for small businesses whose ideas and dreams benefit the economic well being of our communities.

That is where Render Studios comes in. We've partnered with Northern Initiatives for several years, developing more than 20 small business education videos which live on a robust portal that is exclusively for their borrowers. The portal includes a suite of practical videos, financial tools, templates and other resources on topics that matter to every small business owner––money, marketing, and management.

We are honored to be a part of the Northern Initiatives story as they make an impact in the well-being of our economy and support some of the hardest working business owners in Michigan.
