“If you are looking to start or grow a business, this is an opportunity to hear directly from lenders and technical assistance providers how to access funds for your business and how to grow your business successfully.” said Darcy Carter, Small Business Administration Vermont District Director. “Topics will include loans to startups, venture capital or angel funds, microloans from alternative lenders, community bank and credit union loans such as refinancing, revolving lines of credit, and long-term fixed rate real estate and equipment loans with reduced owner cash injection.” 

A panel of lenders from several financial institutions and representatives from business assistance organizations will explain how they have assisted small businesses in the region and how their respective programs work for small businesses. Specific resources will also be available for veterans, those interested in exporting, and for agricultural businesses.

Attendees can meet with panel members one-on-one following the meeting.
