BankPlus lends support to women in business

BankPlus recently announced the launch of The Source, an initiative designed to provide Mississippi women in business with access to capital, mentoring support and networking opportunities to succeed in business.

The Source will launch with the goal to loan $50 million from BankPlus to women seeking to start a business, grow a business or for any other business purpose. This investment further demonstrates the bank’s continued commitment to the communities it serves.

“We are extremely excited to launch The Source as a community-wide initiative for all women in business,” said Bill Ray, President and CEO of BankPlus.

“Many of our state’s great businesses were started by women and many of our business leaders are female. We believe that if we can provide critical information to help all women succeed in business, our communities will thrive.”

The Source launches with Mississippi business women on the initiative’s Founding Advisory Panel. Members of The Source Advisory Panel will act as a resource to participants in The Source network.
