December 2011 Workshop: Alternative Financing
WE ARE SORRY BUT THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Access to adequate capital is critical to the success of small business.
Traditional lending sources continue to tighten their credit standards and entrepreneurs are finding it increasingly difficult to secure capital. The financial crisis has taken a huge toll on many small businesses desperate for financing.
Small business is likely to lead the way out of recession -- but this will require capital.
Our Alternative Financing Workshop will discuss financing and lending options open to small business.
Some of the alternative financing programs that will be discussed:
- Longer Payment Terms: Go to your vendors and try to work out longer payment terms. This can be an easy way to boost cash flows.
- Outsource A/R: There are some things that need expertise. After all, does it really make sense to handle your own payroll? The same goes for A/R.
- Factoring: Essentially, you can get early payments on you're A/R using a process called factoring.
