Starting a business has many challenges. One of the biggest is getting the money you need to begin. This free webinar, the first in a series focused on challenges faced by women entrepreneurs, covers how to access startup funding – grants, bank loans, micro-loans, friends and family, and crowdfunding. The format will include an introductory presentation on startup funding followed by a moderated question and answer period with a panel of experts.
Maryland Women’s Business Center (MWBC) works with entrepreneurs across Maryland’s capital region by way of three locations. Through their resources, they encourage women to start, sustain, and grow their businesses. Through workshops, individual counseling, facilitated peer group support, special resources, and access to capital, MWBC annually helps more than 1,500 women gain the skills, connections, and confidence necessary to navigate entrepreneurship. MWBC is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
