You NEED financing to grow your business.
Do you know which type would best position you to succeed?

Are you a candidate for a grant? Do you qualify for a loan? How much do you need? Do banks prefer certain business types?  Should you consider crowdfunding?

There are many financing methods available to fund your business. The key is to find the right fit for your business type, stage and need. Attend the 13th Annual Ohio SBDC Capital Crash Course and hear about grants, investing, crowd funding and directly from the lenders themselves on how best to determine your financial need, financing type and what you need to bring to the table for the lender’s vault to open for you.
