Limited Capacity seats available

Have you ever had the itch to start a restaurant, or maybe you want to finally start selling your grandma’s secret spaghetti sauce. You’ve done your research, maybe even put together a business plan, but there’s one big hole that needs be filled: how in the heck are you going to find the money to get it off the ground?

Join us for a laid back discussion on the various funding options that are available to you. From conventional bank loans and government backed lending to raising money from investors or your social network.
