Operating a successful small business can be tricky, especially in today’s difficult economy. In order to be competitive, small businesses need to ensure they have enough capital to operate. “Financing Your Business”, a 2-hour seminar presented by MetroAction, the small business development arm of the Chamber, will provide information about the various types of financing available for small businesses. The seminar will be presented on Thursday, October 21 at the Chamber, 222 Mulberry Street, Scranton from, 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. The cost is $10 per person.
Experts from MetroAction will review the types of financing available, what lenders look for, finding grants for your business and community resources you need to know about.
This seminar is ideal for all start-up and existing small businesses, including retail, wholesale, hospitality, agricultural, child care providers, technology business and manufacturing.
Child care providers may also be eligible for professional development credits through the Pennsylvania Quality Assurance System (PQAS), part of the PA Department of Public Welfare’s PA Keys to Professional Development program.
