It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.

A different approach

COMMONWEALTH BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, LLC is operated in Louisville, Kentucky. It’s an independent business consultancy specializing in the areas of private funding, banking and corporate advisory, and all aspects of community, economic, and enterprise development.

The primary goal of the firm is to deliver value to the client by increasing the firm’s speed and flexibility and therefore minimizing the time for financial analysis, project formulation, and project implementation. The end result is a firm that is:

Market- and client-focused rather than product-driven.

Business-based rather than functionally organized so that a smooth informal rapport is established and cultivated between the various value-adding activities.

Goal- and task-oriented rather than function- and process-oriented.

Characterized by less management supervision and “telling” and more individual responsibility and decision making at the operational levels.

CBD is concerned about job creation, housing development, and small business growth. Its staff is a motivated and skilled group of former bankers, entrepreneurs, and government agency lenders. This diverse mix of backgrounds and skills gives CBD a unique understanding of and sensitivity to the needs of both the private and public sectors and their financing sources. When CBD works on a project, it does not work alone. Instead it functions as a catalyst and brings together business, private lending institutions and government in powerful partnerships for economic development.
