DATE CHANGED TO Wed., Dec. 7, 10-11 a.m. Not all money is created equal and financing a new venture can be especially tricky. From bootstrapping to borrowing and everything in between, it can be a daunting task to navigate the new venture lending landscape. After all, why are different lenders looking for different things? Who should I borrow money from (or not)? What are the 3 F's? Shouldn't people just want to give me money to start my business? We get it… there are a lot of questions and this is new territory for most new start-ups. Join us for an in-depth look at what it takes to finance a new venture and debunk a few myths along the way. The workshop features instruction by a Michigan Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Business Consultant and is free (cost is underwritten by the SBDC), however registration is required.
