What do Lenders Look For

What do Lenders look For
Session 4: 3:20pm - 4:50pm
Category: Finance

Lenders obviously look at credit scores, but what else do they look for in a small business owner? Every lender defines the 5 C’s of credit a little differently. Come hear from three different lenders about what they’re looking for. Also on the panel is SBDC, a resource to entrepreneurs offering free one-on-one counseling on gaining access to capital.

All programs are extended to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis. Reasonable arrangements for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested at least 2 weeks in advance. For more information, contact info@sfsmallbusinessweek.com.
