for our Small Business Financing workshop
Exclusively for graduates of WE 360, our multi-week series of workshops for women entrepreneurs of color, this free virtual workshop will cover the "5 Cs of Credit Decisions," teaching participants what lenders really need to approve a small business loan, what factors into their decisions, and where to go for help. Speaker Cindi Rourk (see sidebar) will also provide attendees with contact information for organizations that specialize in small business lending.
Please register below and you'll receive your virtual login link and login information shortly before the event. Thank you!
We strongly value your privacy and will share your information only with our workshop speaker and our own core team.
