The Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center at Arkansas State University will be offering several opportunities in July for small businesses to learn about financing a business.
During several of the financing workshops, a SBA representative will be available to discuss loan options.
There will also be opportunities for businesses to meet with an ASBTDC business consultant. The ASBTDC provides one-to-one confidential guidance to business owners and entrepreneurs. Primary areas of assistance include business planning, financial analysis, market research, loan packaging, growth and expansion, marketing and profitability.
The sessions are made possible by co-sponsorships from FNBC, First Community Bank, NEA Intermodal Authority, East Arkansas Planning and Development District, First Security Bank and Simmons Bank.
There is no charge for the training event or counseling sessions, but registration is required.
