Preparing to Speak to a Lender - Team SBA Roundtable - Webinar

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 of 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. The roundtables are best suited for those who have good credit, a solid business idea, and some money to invest in the business.

Speakers include:
Cathy Gase, Lead Economic Development Specialist, Michigan District Office, SBA
Chris Wendel, Business Coach, Northern Initiatives
Annie Olds, Northwest MI-SBDC Regional Director, Networks Northwest

Co-Sponsor(s): SBA, Northern Initiatives, Networks Northwest

There is no cost to particiapte in the webinar but please register in advance.



Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
