On September 26, we’ll be hosting the first of the two workshops. The Funding Roadmap – Startup Capital will kick off our series with a focus on what you need to get funding!
This event will feature representatives from various funding resources across CNY educating us on loan programs offered by the U.S. SBA, alternative financing such as the Excelsior Growth Fund and specialized state programs/tax credits available to young businesses.
You’ll also hear from founders who have “been there and done that.” These CEOs will share stories about bootstrapping, crowdfunding and tips on how best to apply for government grants.
Before we wrap up, guests will be presented with a comprehensive list highlighting where aspiring entrepreneurs and early-stage company founders can find help across the region.
This is a not to be missed event, and of course, lunch will be served!
