The Small Business Administration and the Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center Great Lakes Bay are pleased to offer a free TEAM SBA - Financing Roundtable at Delta College, 1961 Delta Road, University Center on July 26, 2012, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Before you apply for a business loan, we recommend that you first attend a TEAM SBA – Financing Roundtable on small business lending. The roundtables are a free local orientation session conducted by local lenders, a business consultant from the SBA’s network of Small Business & Technology Development Centers, and a SBA representative. The roundtable will debunk the myths and demystify the process of small business financing; explain how the lending process works and what is expected of you; and explain how the SBA can assist local lenders with its SBA Guaranteed Loan Program.
This forum is best suited to those serious about seeking financing for their business, have good credit, a solid business idea, and some money to invest in their business. Because the SBA does not provide loan guarantees to real estate investment firms, including purchasing and rehabbing houses for sale, this type of financing is not discussed at the roundtable.
