Crowdfunding & SBA Lending
By Crowdfund Better®
Crowdfunding provides over $1B in capital annually for small businesses of all sizes. Imagine if that capital could be used to unlock SBA lending. It can!
Are you a business advisor, bank lender, CDFI, or other technical assistance provider? This Crowdfund Better advisor webinar is for you! Empower yourself, your organization, and your staff with the knowledge and resources to support clients in using crowdfunding as a stepping stone to lending or as equity injection for a SBA loan.
Joining us for this conversation will be Marie Baker, Idaho SBDC Regional III Director, Karen Applegren, Vice President at Zions Bank, and Bruce Dobb, Partner at Concerned Capital. We'll discuss examples of how different types of crowdfunding might be paired with SBA lending to close more loans and get more funding into the hands of small business owners.
Attendees will also be invited to explore the Crowdfund Better Certified Advisor™ training program to better understand how to guide clients to crowdfunding success.
