About Keith

My Experience:

Formerly, I was a Senior Business Development Officer with Valley Economic Development Corporation, one of California’s largest non-profit small business lenders; I am a long-time consultant within the SBDC and owner of KAR Enterprises, an independent consulting firm for businesses denied capital from Banks.

As former Executive Director of Pasadena Development Corporation (PDC), he was the administrator for PDC’s lending programs and technical assistance services. The City of Pasadena provided CDBG resources for a viable “High Risk” micro-lending program to startups and existing businesses looking for capital infusion. I have 25+ years of experience helping small businesses access capital throughout California.

How I Add Value to your Business:

Currently, I am assisting client access capital in the Orange County Inland Empire networks. I am on the Loan Committee for the Riverside County EDA RLF program. Any and all clients seeking capital should contact me and or attend my Access to Capital classes scheduled at the Irvine SBDC Finance Center.
