The Center will be hosting an educational event at the UCR Palm Desert Center: “Access to Capital – Small Business Workshop.” Our sessions will include Managing Your Personal and Business Credit, Cash Flow Analysis for Lending, and Funding Sources for YOUR Business. These sessions will be presented by industry professionals, many with decades of experience helping small business owners. Look forward to presentations by Experian, Pacific Western Bank, and a panel of lenders – all ready to answer YOUR questions!

Along with our expert speakers, we’ve assembled an array of lenders and non-profits serving businesses in all stages of maturity. The bankers, credit specialists, alternative financing lenders, and small business non-profit resources present will be happy to discuss topics ranging from lowering your cost of capital to preparing your loan application package. Whatever your business needs, we are confident that we have the answer among our partners.

Also available to participants is the opportunity to win one of THREE $1000 Business Advancement Grants! At registration, simply tell us your story – why you run a small business & some of your challenges and successes – to be eligible.

Lastly, parking is FREE for registered guests and refreshments will be provided! Tickets are discounted at our Early Bird Rate only until February 28th, so register now!
