Don’t miss the next session of the Latino Business Action Network (LBAN) virtual 6-part series supported by Bank of America, “Resources That Matter for Latinx Entrepreneurs During These Times of Uncertainty.” The 6 part series is designed for entrepreneurs and key members of their team and covers important topics such as economic market forecast, capital access, customer acquisition, resource building, and networking.
The next FREE webinar will stream on Thurs, June 24 at 1pm PST / 4pm EST. This upcoming session is a continuation of last month’s conversation on capital access and financial resources.
What is the impact of not having a banker?
“‘Have a banker before you need a banker’ is one of the best pieces of advice as it relates to capital,” LBAN says. “Capital is a key component in a company’s ability to scale. Unfortunately, not having an established lender is one of the barriers to accessing capital. In addition, we know that Latino-owned businesses are less likely to get their funding needs to be met. The research findings in Ongoing Impact of COVID-19 on Latino-owned Businesses found that 17% of Latino-owned businesses reported that they lacked an established banking provider that prevented them from accessing Round 1 of PPP funding in 2020.”
This series will help you learn first hand from lenders about how to identify quality bankers and how to continuously engage with them in a way that builds a strong relationship, ensuring the best opportunity for your capital needs. In addition, participants will learn how to structure a one-page funding request, describing their company, their capital needs, and their deployment strategy.
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to gain crucial capital insights and knowledge to help your business grow and propel you forward in 2021 and beyond.
