LIVE Webinar | Creative Ways to Finance a Business

Start + Grow Your Business Series
Monday, October 12, 2020
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Learn creative strategies for financing your business during the pandemic.

Financing a business is not always easy and due to the restrictions on businesses during the pandemic, many business owners have seen their sales and profits decline. Sometimes this means that traditional bank lenders are unwilling to extend credit while small businesses are seeing their cashflows shrink. In addition, many start-ups lack the capital and credit criteria to initially borrow from traditional sources. In this workshop, participants will learn about the pros and cons of alternative business financing options.
