TEAM SBA Financing Roundtable

July 7, 2020 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Hosted by SBA and the Southwest Michigan Small Business Development Center  

Before you apply for a business loan, first attend a free financing roundtable. We will debunk the myths and demystify the process of small business financing. The "team" is a banker, an SBA representative, an SBA business counselor, and business owners like you. You will get first-hand information on what credit criteria your banker has. The team will answer all your financing questions and give you advice on what steps to take to achieve your goal of starting or expanding a business. We will explain how the SBA loan guarantee can work for you.   Register:  HERE
