BBIF is a private non-profit, 501C4, lending and technical assistance provider that specializes in aiding minority business owners in building management capacity and accessing capital. The BBIF serves Central Florida's business community through the provision of direct loans, loan guarantees, technical assistance and small business advocacy. The BBIF currently serves the four county areas of Orange, Seminole, Lake, and Osceola counties. The BBIF is one of eight investment corporations created statewide through the Florida Small and Minority Business Act of 1985.
