Financing Your Business – Camden
Presented in partnership with the
Latin American Economic Development Association (LAEDA)
Access to capital is critical to many small businesses, yet most owners don’t understand how to determine what they qualify for, what money is available to them and the roadblocks they may face.
During the workshop, we’ll focus on the following areas:
- Financing options available to small businesses
- What lenders look for
- Matching the right financing program to your needs
- How to prepare for a meeting with a lender
- Issues that will “kill” your deal
This workshop will address these issues as well as inform business owners of what’s expected of them in obtaining capital.
