Emerging Business Services is privileged for the opportunity to focus on the needs of Central Illinois’ start-up and emerging company community. Below are some examples of how Emerging Business Services is making a positive impact through focusing on others:

Capitalization of Startup and Emerging Companies

At Emerging Business Services, we believe there is a bright future ahead for our community. We had the privilege of capitalizing four businesses/endeavors in 2014 through the Bloomington-Normal Angel Investor Network, Inc. One of which was internrocket.com.

Grace of God Children’s Project

In 2015 Emerging Business Services adopted the Grace of God Children’s Project, which allows our business services to meet the needs of others in Kenya. The opportunity to participate in this worthy endeavor was brought to our attention by Nick Glimsdahl, who is leading the U.S. based effort to assist the Grace of God Children’s orphanage. Emerging Business Services provides resources such as capital, legal, educational, health, clothing, nutritional, and others to the Grace of God Children’s project.
