Access to Capital In Person Event

Access to Capital: Black Family Business Success


Navigating the landscape of capital acquisition can be challenging for Black business owners, contributing to disparities in entrepreneurship and economic opportunities. In response to the pressing needs expressed by our community, we're thrilled to announce the upcoming event.

Gain the knowledge on creating effective banking relationships, understanding company lifecycles for capital needs, exploring various funding options from community agencies, and finding answers to the questions that matter most to Black business owners. Tailored tracks include early-stage/startup, growing your business, and scale/market share. This event is for Black and other business owners.
