Business Credit (WBC)
November 9, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Duration: 3 hours
Starting a business is hard work and finding the money to do it is no “piece-of-cake”. Business Credit will look at the business lending field from a lender’s perspective. We will engage in discussions that will help participants understand what funding a business idea is all about and then talk about the best approaches for financing business ventures.
