Smallknot is a project aimed at crowdfunding investment for local small businesses operating on an all-or-nothing funding platform, similar to Kickstarter and Brickstarter. Smallknot aims to provide affordable credit necessary for small businesses to thrive.

The Brooklyn-based project is also starting its expansion into Greenville, South Carolina, the home town of one of the four co-founders, Jay Lee, and are accepting applications nationwide as they have an interest in further expansion. An example of the potential role of the company in your community, Smallknot's first campaign raised $10,000 to replace tables and chairs in Williamsburg's Egg restaurant, funding the new furniture that will be built by the Tribes in a farm in upstate New York.
