SCORE Small Business Workshop: Obtaining a Small Business (SBA) Loan.
If you're starting a business that requires significant financial investment up front, finding a source of funding can be a challenge. Many start-ups and new small businesses often find they may not qualify for a traditional small business bank loan. But there are options! SBA Loan Programs are an alternative to traditional bank loans. SBA has a variety of loan programs, and each is developed to suit individual business needs such as start-up funds, exporting assistance funds, disaster recovery and more. Learn more about securing SBA loans in this program. Free, but space is limited and registration is required.
SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow, and succeed nationwide. They are a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and have been mentoring small business owners for more than forty years.
