Alternative Financing Forum

The University of Georgia Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Celtic Bank, and the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce will host a Small Business Financing Forum on Thursday, August 24th at the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce.

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.  At this workshop, a panel of experts will discuss alternative means for gaining access to the financing your business needs to thrive and grow.   

The program will be held from 9am to 11am on Thursday, August 24th at the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce, 1200 6th Avenue, Saunders Board Room, Columbus, GA  31902. This is a free program thanks to the generous sponsorship of Celtic Bank.  
Registration is required. To register visit:  https://www.georgiasbdc.org/small-business-financing-forum/  For more information please call 706-569-2651 or e-mail columbus@georgiasbdc.org
