Financing Your Small Business - 1/22/20 -C0001

Recently there have been a number of new developments in the world of financing.  Methods such as crowdfunding and Peer-to-Peer lending offer potential ways to help small business and start-ups. At the same time new regulations and a slower economy have complicated the use of more traditional financing tools such as bank loans and factoring. This financial bootcamp will offer an overview of the advantages and disadvantages of the various forms of financing. It will also offer advice on how to minimize the financial and emotional cost of the various application processes
