Meet the Lender and Team SBA Funding Roundtable - Kalamazoo, MI
Meet the Lender allows new entrepreneurs and existing small business owners will have an opportunity to meet with a variety of local banks and credit unions to discuss their business plans and funding needs at one session. Spend 10-15 minutes with each lender to see if they are the right match for your business concept. If you need assistance with business plan preparation or review, please contact the MI-SBDC at (269) 387-6004. If you are not ready to meet with a lender but are serious about seeking financing for your business, you owe it to yourself to attend a Financing Roundtable presented by TEAM SBA. TEAM SBA consists of a preferred SBA lender, a business consultant, SBA economic development staff, and business owners like you. We'll debunk the myths and demystify the process of bank financing - in plain English. You will learn how your loan application will be analyzed, what underwriting criteria is used, and how banking regulations affect the decision. We will answer your questions based upon your business model. Over the last seven years, TEAM SBA has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs gain a better understanding of the financing process. In order to help you, we require you to have good credit, a solid business idea and some money to invest in your business. Please note: The SBA does not provide loan guarantees to real estate investment firms and this type of financing is not discussed at the roundtables.
Speaker(s): Representatives from the SBA, Huntington Bank, Consumers Credit Union, Kellogg Community Credit Union, and Arbor Financial Credit Union
