Event Details

As a company that talks to thousands of small business owners every day, we continually hear that Main Street is being hit the hardest. In order for our economy to heal and small business owners to hire again, we have to solve the Access to Capital issue. So how do we get Los Angeles entrepreneurs the funding they need to start or grow their businesses?

Education and Access = Access to Capital: Money to Mainstreet

Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. presents Access to Capital: Money to Mainstreet. This must-attend event is designed for small and micro business owners looking to gain insight on funding options and get an up-close and personal look at the variety of traditional and alternative paths to accessing capital. Join leading capital experts from national and local community banks, community development funds, and the latest entrants — crowdfunding organizations, for a day of “how-tos” on raising debt and capital.

The Access to Capital: Money to Mainstreet event will feature both a Town Hall and a Town Square.

Town Hall:

Industry leaders, lenders and investors share best practices on accessing the right capital for your business in a full day of panel discussions. Plus local entrepreneurs share their inspirational stories on starting up and growing their businesses. Panel discussions will include:

  • Straight Talk: Getting Traditional Loans in Today’s Economy
  • Off the Beaten Path: Is Alternative Funding the Route for You?
  • Crowdfunding: Should You Be In with the “In Crowd”?
  • Startups Start Here: Strategies from LA Entrepreneurs
  • Accessing Capital for Women and Minority-Owned Businesses

  • Town Square:

    Get up close and personal with local lenders, crowdfunders, educators, and business services all committed to small business growth. This is the ultimate interactive experience designed to put local resources at your fingertips. In Town Square, you’ll find the following districts:

  • Financial District: Join in on round-tables or make one-on-one appointments with lending officers from financial institutions
  • City Hall: Get small business info and educational resources from representatives of local Los Angeles programs
  • Business District: Access small business resources
  • Start-up Alley: Meet with representatives from organizations and firms that help start-ups raise capital
  • You’ll also be part of a dynamic community atmosphere of 400+ local businesses and experts who are all working toward the same goal: the success of main street small businesses.

    If interested, small business owners can request time to speak directly to a lender at the event (this can be requested during the registration process). Limited spaces available.

    Continental breakfast and lunch are included with registration.
