The Small Business Administration is sponsoring a “Meet the Lenders” event on March 13 at Cleveland State University College of Business. This event will bring together both existing and start-up minority entrepreneurs with about a dozen lenders for private interviews and business plan discussion. Any entrepreneur that is interested should work with a Small Business Development Center (SBDC) or a SCORE Association in order to prepare their business plan and be prepared prior to the event. (Below are the contacts for both). When contacting either, ask about attending the March 13th Meet the Lenders event to get more information!
