The workshop will include an overview of lending options and information about how to improve chances of getting funded. Clayton White, Founder of Simmons & White, and Carmen Sunda, Director of the Louisiana Small Business Development Center Greater New Orleans Region will present:
Funding Options for Your Company
Companies today have many options for getting the capital needed to start and/or grow the company. Learn what type of funding is available, and which type of category would fit your small business best. Companies are more successful in obtaining the funding needed if they understand the drivers of the funding entity.
How to Develop a Winning Funding Proposal
Once you know what type of funding you’re looking for, you’ve got to convince the funder that your company is a good fit for their money. You’ll learn how to approach a lender or investor. You’ll learn how to prepare essential documents and key questions a lender/investor may ask. Knowing what the funder is looking for and the questions the funder wants answered will improve your chances of obtaining the financing you need.
Admission is free, but registration is required to attend.
