When asked, most business owners will tell you that their biggest hurdle to growing their company is access to working capital. I, for one, could use all new computers, more square footage to work from, and at least six months worth of salary for my next two hires. Simply put, I need money. But fear not, I may have found us all a great solution.
For the last few years, the Valley Economic Development Center (VEDC) has been producing a very successful loan event for business owners in the San Fernando Valley (just north of Los Angeles). Many banks participate, but so do alternative loan providers, which is rarely the case in most programs.
Well, get ready, the event is coming to L.A., and it’s free to entrepreneurs through this blog post. Why? If the event is as good as it claims to be, all of us will tell others about it in the future.
So here’s the scoop; it’s called “Where’s the Money? Access to Capital Business Expo” and will take place on Saturday, July 20th, from 8AM to 3PM, at the Sheraton Los Angeles Downtown. You can only register for free by clicking here.
