Access to Capital: Money to Mainstreet is hitting the road! After an incredibly successful inaugural event in Los Angeles, we are preparing to take the same panels, lending opportunities, and capital resources that LA business owners found so helpful to cities across the country. Stay tuned to see where and when the next event is – our tour is one that you can’t afford to miss!

The first in the series of Access to Capital: Money to Mainstreet events took place in Los Angeles in October 2012. Read a recap of that event or watch video footage of the informative panels.

Access to Capital Campaign, presented by Dun & Bradstreet, is an effort to nationally educate small business owners on their opportunities to access the capital they need to grow. Access to capital has been a hot topic for small business owners across the country. The campaign serves as our means of educating small businesses on the various forms and access points of capital. Many businesses continue to struggle in our current economy and a constant source of their hardship is the inability to access capital to grow their businesses and create jobs. We feel as though a national event tour where small businesses could meet and pitch lenders and learn about the various form of capital would be the best thing we could offer. Therefore, we started Access to Capital: Money to Mainstreet, what we hope is a truly innovative tour of one-day events intended to help you grow and sustain your small business.
