Moderated by Linda Darragh of the Kellogg School Of Management, the entrepreneurs on this panel share their experiences when searching for capital and the strategies they used that lead them to success.
Access to Capital is an event hosted by Dun & Bradstreet aimed at educating small business owners about the many forms of capital, and providing them with the opportunity to connect with a wide variety of lenders at the same, convenient location. We introduced the event in LA in 2012, and its positive reception prompted us to take it on a nationwide tour.
The next Access to Capital event will take place on August 14th in Atlanta. For more information, visit http://accesstocapital.com/ or reach out on Twitter @DandB or @AccessToCapital
