Did you know that access to capital can be a variety of options, and actually fun and creative?  Join us for a panel discussion and workshop on Creative Access to Capital. We will discuss the various ways that a business owner can fund their business if they are not eligible, or do not have the resources, to leverage traditional financing (such as a bank/credit union or SBA loan). Come learn about alternatives in funding and financing from a value-packed panel of people who have "been there, done that" as they discuss these methods:
• Crowdfunding
• Factor financing
• Angel investments
• Merchant financing and other avenues
Join us to learn from these panel of experts:

Nichole MacDonald:
Nichole has raised over $3M in crowdfunding and an additional $3.5M through angel funding, factor financing, and merchant loans. She is most well-known for her Kickstarter campaign that raised $1.2M in 30 days.
