Did you know that no matter what else your company does, it's always in the cash business?

For start-ups (or those already in business), this workshop will help you understand and manage your cash resources. You will discuss important questions with an experienced business lender and financial manager. You will leave better equipped to manage your company's finances. You will get answers to these questions: 

What is "Funding"?

  • How much money will I need to reach breakeven or to achieve my financial goals?
  • Do I need new money, why, and what forms will be most appropriate?
  • What are the trade-offs among various funding alternatives?
  • What is "Leverage"? What are the risks to me and to the funder?
  • How do I find a funder? Where do I start looking? When?
  • If I can find a funder, what will be the terms & conditions?
  • What will the funder need to learn to make a decision?
  • Does my credit score matter?
  • What is the real cost of new money to my business?
