The Basics of Financing Your Business
Presented in partnership with Two River Community Bank
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:
- Review of financing options available to small businesses
- Understanding what lenders look for to help finance your existing or new business
- Matching the right financing program to your needs
- How to prepare for a meeting with a lender
- Identify issues that will “kill” your deal
Join us at this FREE workshop and learn about financing opportunities that can start and grow your small business.
