Businesses need access to capital to operate and grow their businesses. However, traditional loans are not always available nor are they necessarily the best source of funds for all businesses.

The Alternative Financing Forum is a no-cost financial workshop for small businesses or new start-ups in need of obtaining financing for their business.  A  panel of experts will discuss many different options for your business to gain funding in order to thrive and grow.  Attendees will be allowed to ask panelists questions in order to understand the best options for their business or start-up. 

You’ll learn about  SBA loans, traditional lending, micro loans, and more.  Presented by the UGA Small Business Development Center at Clayton State University. 

We are a Public Service and Outreach Unit of the University of  Georgia. funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.  Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance.
