One of the biggest challenges in establishing a business is having access to the capital needed to get started - and, sometimes, to keep going. This workshop will look at building a financial plan, assessing funding resources, and how to match the two. Attendees will come away with practical tools to assess needs and sources, as well as the confidence to pursue funding.
