One of the biggest challenges faced by most entrepreneurs is access to capital to fuel growth and fund other initiatives. While small business’ traditional financing partner, the local bank, remains a good option for those that can qualify, there are many other small businesses that are turned away—despite the fact that they are often excellent borrowers.
Fortunately, the landscape has changed with more options than ever before to find the capital a business needs. From non-profit lenders, crowd funding platforms, invoice financing, and online lenders, there is capital available; borrowers just need to be savvy about where they look, what they’re looking for, and making decisions about what will work for their situation and what doesn’t. Join us for this insider’s view into the new landscape and what you can do to make the most of your available options. Our speaker is Carol O’Connell of Excelsior Growth Fund.
