When: November 12,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Virtually all businesses will, at some time, need to obtain outside financing. For the small business owner, this generally means obtaining some type of financing from friends, family or perhaps a traditional bank loan.

For many, this process turns out to be a frustrating and difficult experience. It doesn't have to be that way, however. Whether you are looking for financing to purchase a new business or are in the need of seasonal financing, proper planning will increase your chances of obtaining the needed financing. A side benefit may be that, during the process, you will learn more about your business.

While poor management is cited most frequently as the reason businesses fail, inadequate or ill-timed financing is a close second. Whether you're starting a business or expanding one, sufficient ready capital is essential. But it is not enough to simply have sufficient financing; knowledge and planning are required to manage it well. These qualities ensure that entrepreneurs avoid common mistakes like securing the wrong type of financing, miscalculating the amount required, or underestimating the cost of borrowing money.

Join us for this excitiong introduction to small business financing.
