The small business lending landscape has changed drastically in recent years. Small business owners have more options than ever, but it will take some effort to uncover the opportunity that works for your small business.
At this workshop, questions addressed will include:
- What are the different types of bank loans?
- What is an SBA Guaranteed Loan?
- Are there grants available?
- What is Crowdfunding?
- What should you be aware of for each of these potential funding alternatives?
