SBDC Webinar Series: Denied, Denied, Approved! Assessing Your Capital Options

Thursday, May 20 2021 at 12:00pm - 1:00pm

This webinar is part of the Michigan SBDC’s ‘Bridging the Million Dollar Gap’ Series. This six-episode program is designed for you if you are done with the hustle, and done working as hard as you can and not seeing the growth you expected from your business. Why not scale up to a new version of your business with a masterful Advisory Board? Come meet an incredible group of business professionals as we draw up the blueprints to bridge the gap between your effort and the business growth you’re working so hard to achieve.

In our third episode we’re talking about money. Join us for a conversation between Marcus Rankins of Metro Community Development and Dan Brophy of the Michigan SBDC about why you shouldn’t let a denial for a loan stop you, what to do to maximize your opportunities for financial capital, and how to analyze & compare loan products for the best possible solution for you. Bring your questions on how to navigate the commercial lending space and find an alternative source of capital if you need one.


Facilitator: Bernard Drew, Michigan SBDC Business Growth Consultant

Panelist: David Beeson, Michigan SBDC Business Growth Consultant
