Over 100 small business owners attended the Access to Capital Phoenix event on March 26th, 2014. In order to bring the event to more cities and communities nationwide, we scaled down the size, limiting registration to 150 attendees.
Attendees attended a panel of lending executive and experts, then were treated to spotlights on the developments around crowdfunding, and how to leverage business credit. Following the educational part of the day, attendees sat down with lender representatives to discuss their business plans, and met with Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. Credit Advisors to look through their business credit reports and receive recommendations on how to possibly improve them.
