I Need Money 

Alternative Funding Sources for Your SMB


We had to cancel this event.  
We hope to reschedule it after the first of the year.  Please stay tuned as we figure out how to do these at a lower price so that more people can afford to come.

If you are a Startup or you have a new idea for your business, you frequently need to find ways to finance your new venture.  But where to go and how to get the money you need.  You can:
  • dip into your own savings accounts
  • borrow money from family and friends
  • borrow money from a bank
  • get a grant
  • find one or more investors (VC, angel investors, etc.)
  • plus...

For our December meeting we will be exploring all of the funding options that are available.  You will have an opportunity to ask questions of some of the leading professionals that help companies find funding via the various sources.

Who Should Come:
  • StartUps
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Business Consultants  
  • Social Media Consultants
  • Small Business Owners
  • Individuals considering starting their own company




  • Mixed Green Salad with Orange Thyme Vinaigrette
  • Choice of Bourbon Glazed Salmon, Beer Can Chicken or BBQ Meatloaf
