Event Details

Join SocialVentures and the Ohio Small Business Development Center at Columbus State (SBDC), for our next Columbus Funds event. This new event series is designed to help social entrepreneurs and small business owners navigate the complex world of funding.

In this edition we hear about Community Development Financial Institutions and how they play an important role in generating economic growth and opportunity. By financing community businesses—including small businesses, microenterprises, nonprofit organizations, commercial real estate, and affordable housing—CDFIs spark job growth and retention in hard-to serve markets across the nation.

We will hear from lenders from the Finance Fund and ECDI and learn how to go about getting deals funded. We will also hear from Omar D' Angelo, owner of  Barroluco Argentine Comfort Food, and his experience in getting his business financed.



Omar D'Angelo, owner of Barroluco Argentine Comfort Food

Columbus Funds is...

Columbus Funds is a program of SocialVentures and the Ohio Small Business Development Center at Columbus State designed to bring together speakers and panelists from both sides of the negotiating table to introduce you to the local sources of capital for your business in an informal setting featuring speakers and panelists representing small businesses and their investors and lenders.  

Bring your questions during the formal session or during informal networking with the panelists before and after the program.   

Do you need ASL interpretation provided for you at this event? Thanks to the generosity of the Crane Group, all SocialVentures programs can offer ASL interpretation for the deaf and hard of hearing. Let us know if you would like this service when you register.
