Funding Your Dream- Monday, June 19

Finding the capital to launch and grow a sustainable business is a challenge all entrepreneurs face. In Detroit, alternative funding programs are becoming increasingly popular and more attractive than traditional bank loans however knowing what financial options exist and how to apply can be very intimidating.

Join us on Monday, June 19 to hear the journey local entrepreneurs have taken to fund their businesses. The panelists will discuss programs they’ve applied for, best practices to be successful in alternative fundraising and how to stay motivated and inspired when faced with rejection.
