Savvy business owners know that capital, or money, is the key to starting and growing a business. For most businesses, a portion of this capital needs is raised through financing. However, it can be difficult for business owners to understand all of the financing options and which is best for their company. This workshop will help business owners understand the advantages and disadvantages of each source of financing (debt, equity, crowdfunding, and alternative sources). In addition to this, business owners will also get a glimpse of what lenders look for in a loan candidate (the 5 “C’s”).
• Learn about the financing sources (ways to raise capital) available to you and your business.
• Knowledge of what lenders analyze when you apply for financing.
• Specific information on SBA lending for start-up and growing companies
• How to build a banking relationship.
Entrepreneurs looking to start a business and those who are currently in business.
