The Missouri SBDC at Missouri State University, U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and the Ozarks Small Business Incubator (OzSBI) will host a free workshop for new and existing businesses focused on programs to fund your business. Krishin Thadani with SBA will discuss the SBA’s guaranteed loan program and "Lender Match," which is a free online referral tool that connects small businesses with participating SBA-approved lenders. OzSBI will introduce their Microloan fund which provides direct, low–interest microloans for the startup, expansion and growth of rural businesses located in the south-central Missouri counties of Douglas, Howell, Oregon, Ozark, Shannon, Texas and Wright. The Missouri SBDC will be on-hand to discuss how their services can facilitate the loan process for you and your business. There is no fee to attend this session, but pre-registration is required.
