In my last post I suggested the “Where’s the Money Expo”. I attended, networked and took some pix. I met some great people, like a serial entrepreneur who’s working with Richard Branson (he had photos to prove it!). In addition, I’m happy to report that the organization putting this on (VEDC) is doing something other orgs aren’t: they are funding loans as small as $5,000 and walking business owners through the process of qualifying for the dollars they seek.
The event is now taking place in the San Fernando Valley (some 30 miles north of LA), and in our continuous effort to be a resource, VEDC is letting our network attend for free through this blog post.
The “Where’s the Money? Access to Capital Business Expo” will take place on Saturday, September 21st, from 8AM to 3PM, at the Odyssey Restaurant in Granada Hills. You can only register for free by clicking here.
