About this Event

The Manufacturing Alliance of Chester and Delaware Counties (MACC/DC), an initiative of the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC) invites you join us for Navigating Working Capital in 2021.

As the past year has shown, companies need to be financially prepared and have the right relationships with bankers, economic development council and advisors. These relationships can make a strategic difference in managing your business.

Accessing and maintaining credit/financing as well as identifying options and obstacles can be the difference between success and failure in securing working capital.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Business Owners, CFOs and Facilities Managers can learn how to develop and manage meaningful and effective banking/lending relationships to weather any storm.

 Pre-registration is required.
