For many entrepreneurs, obtaining capital is an important step on the path to future business success. Connections to Capital is an educational meet and greet event with local capital providers that will focus on how to access small business loans, equity investment, and alternative sources of capital for businesses. We'll have short "elevator pitches" to introduce capital resources and have open networking time to make valuable connections.
