“Meet the Small Business Bankers” will provide expert advice on small business financing strategies

Attendees to meet one-on-one with lenders and representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)

NEW YORK – On Thursday, January 26, at 9:00 a.m., the Pace University Small Business Development Center, affiliated with the Lubin School of Business, will host “Meet the Small Business Bankers,” an expert panel of small business lenders who will discuss how new entrepreneurs can find and secure financing. The conference serves as an opportunity for small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs to learn directly from the lenders themselves about how they evaluate a loan application, as well as best practices for securing financing.

The panel will educate new entrepreneurs on two key financing options – the 7(a) guarantee and 504 loan programs – which have provided billions of dollars in affordable small business financing. This event will also provide entrepreneurs with an opportunity to meet one-on-one with sixteen different lenders as well as the SBA to assess which programs would be the best fit for their individual needs.
