How Much Capital Do I Really Need?
Limited Capacity seats available

We hear stories all the time about the tech company that needed $5M to develop their product or the homeless man who launched a handyman company with nothing more than a few tools and a smile on his face. With such a vastly different scope of capital needed depending on the industry, product, service, etc., how do you really know how much money you need to open that business you've been dreaming about? Do you need $10M to get something started or can you launch with just the money in your back pocket?

In this session, Sean will shine light to this question and help you discover the answer for yourself.

What Can Banks Do For You?
Limited Capacity seats available

When you think of banks, what kind of services come to mind?

The first answer is usually lending money, and banks can definitely do that, but what else can banks do for entrepreneurs outside of just writing a check?
