Basics of Financing Your Business (Live Webinar)
Presented in Partnership with
New Jersey Small Business Development Center (SBDC)
at The College of New Jersey
This introductory webinar addresses how 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 obtaining financing. This workshop was created to address these issues as well as inform business owners of what’s expected of them in obtaining capital. 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
- Identify issues that will “kill” your deal
