The Small Business Center at Haywood Community College will offer a free online seminar entitled, “Financing Your Business,” on Thursday, February 11 from 9 until 11 am.

Financing continues to be a challenge for many small business owners. Questions range from who will give me money for my business idea and what do they need from me; how will this business make money and will it be enough to pay back a loan or attract an investor?

Speakers for this seminar are the NC Rural Center and The Support Center.
