This event is part of Realise Business’ WOMEN’S BUSINESS series, supporting women to achieve growth by applying for grants and other funding opportunities. All are welcome!

For many small businesses, securing funding from a bank is a critical component of growth and success. However, navigating the business loan application process can be daunting, and many founders and small business owners need help understanding what banks are looking for in a funding request and why more than a good credit score is needed to secure bank funding. 

This workshop is designed for entrepreneurs, small business owners, and anyone who is looking to secure funding from a bank. Whether you’re seeking a small business loan or a line of credit, this workshop will give you the knowledge and tools to prepare a successful funding request.

In this workshop, Access to Finance Advisor Judy Hendricks will cover different types of bank financing options available to business owners including secured and unsecured lending so that you can align your business needs with the right type of funding for your business, and create a compelling funding request that will increase your chances of securing financing from a bank. She will share tips, resources, and tools to help you effectively communicate your business’s strengths and potential to lenders.
