In many cases, business owners will need to seek outside financing in order to grow. In this engaging, informative workshop, attendees will get inside the minds of a banker to analyze which businesses are likely to win financing. You’ll walk through two real-life loan applications and learn who can get a loan, who can’t and why, and what bankers want to see before they agree to fund a business. We explain the key parts of the application and address the challenges the two business owners will face when applying for a loan, from a traditional bank or another type of lender.
You’ll walk away with:
  • examples of real-life loan applications
  • a clearer idea of your ability to secure business financing
  • steps you make need to take to win financing in the future
