Free SBA Roundtable on Small Business Lending The U.S. Small Business Administration and the Michigan Small Business Development Center are pleased to offer a free TEAM SBA Roundtable on Small Business Lending at: 3110 Schneider Hall Haworth College of Business Western Michigan University Kalamazoo, MI 49008 September 11, 2014 from 1:00 p.m to 4:00 p.m. The roundtable gives current or prospective small business owners insight into the SBA Guaranty Loan Program and the criteria used by loan officers to evaluate a loan request. A team of experts will demystify the lending process, debunk the myths about SBA programs, and share real life examples of successful loan applicants. The roundtable is taught by experienced lenders with expertise in small business and SBA financing. “What’s unique about the roundtable is the access to the SBA and small business lenders,” said Gerald Moore, Michigan SBA District Director. “Every roundtable is different and each is tailored to the needs of the participants. It’s a very interactive process and one of our top rated training events.” Over 2,000 clients have attended the roundtables since 1998. The roundtable is best suited to those seeking financing for their business, have good credit, a solid business idea, and some money to invest in the business.
