Create Birmingham, in collaboration with Sabre Finance, has established a pool of funds to provide loans to CO.STARTERS graduates. Read the guidelines carefully, complete the application and assemble all requested materials according to the instructions.


  • Submit the completed application using our secure online form.
  • Prior to submitting, it is suggested, but not required, that applicants confer with Create staff to review the request. Contact Jessica Moody, Director of Programs, at to schedule a meeting.
  • Based on the application review outcome, a subsequent meeting with Sabre Finance staff may be required.


Funds are available to CO.STARTERS graduates who missed no more than two classes and participated in the Celebration Night presentation. Graduates must be in the Start-Up or Business phase of development.


Request amounts range from $500 – $7,500.
