Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 14, 2013
Robert Gloer, IOU Central’s President and COO, joins a prestigious group of local and national entrepreneurs and lending authorities selected to participate in “town hall” expert panels and presentations at Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp.’s 2013 Access to Capital Atlanta. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta on Wednesday, August 14, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Gloer will be a panelist for Off the Beaten Path: Is Alternative Funding the Route for You? This panel explores the number of alternative capital options available, including micro-lenders, CDFIs and credit unions, and explains how these sources of capital differ from traditional lenders.
Access to Capital fosters lending and educates small business owners about the many types of financing. In addition to expert panels and speakers, the event provides on-site, one-on-one meetings with a wide spectrum of business lenders. The first two Access to Capital events resulted in tens of millions in loan originations to small business attendees. With 99 percent of registered businesses in Georgia classified as small businesses — and 86 percent of these employing fewer than five employees — the need for capital to help stimulate growth is clear.
What: Off the Beaten Path: Is Alternative Funding the Route for You?
When: 1:15 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Where: Hyatt Regency Atlanta, 265 Peachtree St., Atlanta, GA 30303
