South St. Paul Future

Following the closing of the Swift & Company plant, South St. Paul business leaders came together and established a private lending organization, South St. Paul Future Incorporated. Future Inc. is funded through common stock purchased by the individuals of South St. Paul. The shareholders receive no dividends or capital appreciation through holding the stock, it is solely for a philanthropic purpose.

Today, Future Inc. offers competitive fixed asset financing to qualified firms whose operations are based within the City of South St. Paul. Whether you need financing for new equipment, expansion, startup costs, or acquisitions, Future is here to help you with the next step.
