Business Lending Seminar  

Need money for your business? This panel discussion will focus on the current commercial lending appetite for small business loans including equipment financing, revolving credit lines, construction loans and more.  You’ll learn firsthand about collateral & equity requirements, rates and terms from commercial banks, credit unions and “micro lenders.”  Presenters, representing several local lending institutions and the US Small Business Administration will advise registrants on what is needed in a successful loan package and how SCORE volunteers can mentor you throughout the process for free.  

This seminar is free but seating is first limited to registrants holding confirmed reservations up to 5 minutes prior the start of the program.  Use this link to confirm your planned attendance.

Business Plan Basics 

What’s a Business Plan for? Do I really need one? Should I hire someone to write it for me? This class will help you answer those questions, find relevant examples and learn to do research that will help you differentiate your product or service and identify your potential customers. Most importantly, the class includes a personal appointment with a Certified SCORE Mentor who can help with your plan and address any questions you may have. Bill Ruttledge will be your course leader.
