Key Quotes:

“Access to capital is no different from the disparity in health outcomes and education… Community banks are making decisions at the community level, by credit committees that are made up of local citizens, and we're approving loans for neighbors. And so when, you know, minority business owner applies at the Bank of America, you know, this is not a criticism of large banks, but those processes are centralized. And so the underwriting takes place way outside of the community. And they're just looking at the the numbers on the application, which doesn't always tell the complete story.” - Harry Allen

“Have a vision for the type of life you want to lead, and identify and define the non negotiables as early as possible.” - Harry Allen
