Small Business University
Businesses with fifty or fewer full-time employees make up more than 75% of the Chamber’s membership. We work hard to support this group of members with benefits and events that address their particular needs.
Small Business University is a series of programs that provides new tools, best practices and creative solutions to the daily challenges of running a business.
2013 Upcoming Program Schedule
All programs held from 7:30 -9 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
Financing a Business, Wednesday, May 22, 7:30 -9 a.m.
All businesses experience times when they need infusions of capital, whether it is to start, expand, or just cover a gap in receivables. Your choice of funding sources can have a major influence on how you run your business, and impact the level of control that you have in future decisions. With so many options, how do you decide what is right for you?
Our panel of experts will discuss the pro and cons of a wide range of financing options, and share their advice for choosing and procuring funding.
