About CNote

CNote is a women-led impact platform on a mission to close the wealth gap through financial innovation. 

 

CNote’s proprietary technology and diligence engines provide a frictionless way for corporations, like PayPal and Mastercard, to invest millions into low-income and BIPOC areas to advance economic inclusion and help close the racial wealth gap.

 

Dollars invested and deposited on the CNote platform are deployed with our national network of Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and mission-driven deposit institutions, which are high-impact, local lenders dedicated to delivering accessible financial resources to businesses and communities not served by big banks.

What We’ve Achieved

Sustainable Capital for Communities:

CNote’s needs-matching technology system captures the real-time capital needs of a nationwide network of mission driven lenders to better provide a sustainable deposit base for underserved communities.

Premiere Impact Reporting:

Our data-driven impact reporting system reduces the burden on mission-driven depository organizations related to capturing and reporting the downstream impact of their work while more readily connecting impact-focused investors with aligned and timely community investments.

Streamlined Diligence:

Our diligence engine and technology creates equitable funding opportunities for community-focussed lenders across the US, and through them, the low income and minority communities they support with financial resources.

CNote is for the forward-thinking, courageous, and diverse.

Not only do I feel proud everyday I get to do my job because of CNote’s mission and impact, I also feel valued and part of an amazing group of people. It’s filled with challenges that make me grow as a professional and a massive team spirit that pushes us to give our very best.

CNote has built a culture where forward-thinking minds can all come together to inspire, challenge and empower one another in creating long lasting impact within the communities we support.

Danielle BurnsVP of Business Development

Working with a team that supports, recognizes and understands the importance of emotional intelligence is an underrated value. At CNote, we remind each other every day that together we can do hard and challenging things and when those challenging times get too heavy - take a time out - No questions Asked! Step away and focus on the self care needed to refocus and show back up to be your best self. That is the part of our team that I appreciate the most.

Amanda GlincherDirector of Marketing

I joined CNote to be a part of a tech-first, forward thinking firm that was focused on equity. What I found was a team that is both focused on repairing our world and walks the talk in so many ways. From partnering with some of the world’s largest corporations to bring millions of dollars to communities in need to deciding on a company health plan, every decision that the CNote team makes is intentional and aligned with our values. I feel both proud and honored to get to do this work every day and work alongside so many wonderful individuals.

CNote values its employees just as much as its clients. It is baked in CNote’s culture to trust, support, and benefit its employee so I can bring the best out of myself and create value with my talent.

Julia PhippsDirector of Due Diligence

In joining CNote, I felt lucky to have found such a powerful combination of a compassionate vision, great team culture, and a unique impact investing model. My time here has only reinforced that feeling. I love being able to work with teammates who have great talent and deep experience within both finance and technology, which I believe is key to the fast success CNote is having with enterprise investors.
