Everyone talks about sources of funding but what option is best? When do you move from one source to the other? How do you position yourself for success? To help answer these questions, join us as we hear from a panel of successful business owners. They will share their trade secrets and discuss the many creative ideas they have employed to help fund their business. Learn how one entrepreneur bootstrapped his way to selling to a Fortune 50 company, and how another took a bank loan to build a prototype that is now a product found in every Walmart in America. You will also hear how one founder rejected millions in funding (even though he desperately needed it) because it wasn’t ‘smart money’. From traditional financing to alternative financial options, their stories will give you ideas for your own business. The panel will be moderated by Pam Berneking, Chief Commercial Officer at CommunityAmerica.
As a bonus! Food and (adult) drink will be served!
