SMALL FOOD PRODUCERS NETWORK announces
Funding for Food: Financing Workshop with NYBDC
Thursday, October 3rd from 6:30pm – 8:30pm
@Brooklyn Brine – 574 President Street in the Gowanus
Finding financing to grow a small business is a common challenge for food entrepreneurs, traditional bank financing can be hard to get and funding programs are often confusing. To help shed some light on the process, we have teamed up with our friends at theSouthwest Brooklyn Industrial Development Corporation to host a financing workshop and networking event. We’re moving our show to the Gowanus this month, where Brooklyn Brine has generously offered up space for our workshop.
Our presenters from New York Business Development Corporation (NYBDC) will provide information on the NYC Food Manufacturers Growth Fund and other opportunities available for financing the growth of your business. In addition to information on NYBDC’s suite of financial products NYBDC staff will also provide guidance on what lenders are looking for and advise on how to craft a competitive application. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn more about the Fund and speak with lenders about your specific situation.
Food and drinks will be provided. RSVP now to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat.
