The Crater Small Business Development Center of Longwood University and the City of Petersburg Office of Economic Development will sponsor a Banker’s Forum focusing on getting the Facts on Government Lending Programs and Local Bank Loans.
The Forum is designed to bring traditional and non-traditional lenders together with small businesses to talk “MONEY”. There will be representatives on hand from the Longwood SBDC, SBA, VSBFA, banks and other lending sources to discuss how they may help address the financial needs of local small businesses.
Owners of small businesses in need of working capital, money for equipment, and funding for real estate should attend. The program will include a banker panel discussion moderated by a very informed lender who will ask lenders questions concerning how to obtain funding. Following the panel discussion, the audience will be able to ask the panelists questions. Each Panelist will also have a booth to provide opportunities for one-on-one conversations with small business representatives.
