Linking Businesses with the Rural Midwest since 1991

Somewhere in a big metro area a growing business is wondering how they'll grow and stay competitive while facing rising rents, high taxes, city restrictions and a fickle labor force. Meanwhile, leaders of rural communities are wondering how to bring good jobs and economic stability to their community – offering lower operating costs, favorable tax treatment, incentives and dedicated workers. If the business and community knew one another! That's where we come in. We're Essex Capital, owners of the Community Venture Network and since 1991 we have been forging these relationships and helping companies and communities grow.
