Here’s more from a poster:

Are you:

· A start up business (0-6 months)?

· A business under 2 years in operation, not yet bankable?

· An established business, in operation greater than 2 years, but facing new challenges such as growth and restructuring debt?

Do you need money for:

· Equipment and Inventory?

· Working Capital?

· Commercial or Mixed-Use Real Estate? Funds can be used to purchase, renovate, refinance, or build commercial or mixed-use real estate projects.

· Franchises? Funds can be used for the start-up, or purchase of an existing franchise

· Contract Financing? Loans are available to businesses that contract to provide goods or services. Funds can be used for payroll or to purchase equipment or supplies needed to complete or partially complete a contract.

· Cash Flow Restructuring? These loans, available to existing businesses only, help restructure debt to manageable levels that will provide the business with internal capacity to expand

· Energy efficiency loan? Funds can be used toward energy-efficient construction to help save utility bills.

If your business or business idea has a need for any of the above, you need to save a date on your calendar to attend the White Center Business District Small Business Financing Seminar on March 7 from 6-7:30pm (location TBA). We have an All-Star line-up of non-profit lenders, business education centers and traditional lenders to present to you:

· Lending process: type of capitals that fit your needs, underwriting process, materials needed for application, turn-around time, etc.

· Education opportunity: classes on writing a business plan, marketing, financing available through local business assistance center and schools.

In all, this is a seminar you don’t want to miss; please spread the words to friends/neighbors who might be interested. Let me know if you have any questions.
