Prosper Jefferson: Identify Funding for your Business

(AVONDALE, La) — As small business owners and entrepreneurs know, access to capital plays an important role in the success of a company. Understanding your financing options (both traditional and non-traditional) and learning about the best ways to connect with investors can help with everything from hiring new employees and securing enough inventory to meet the demands of your consumers to purchasing a new building or equipment as your company expands.

As part of the ongoing Prosper Jefferson series, the Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) and the Jefferson Chamber have teamed up to bring you a seminar on a variety of lending and investment options available in the Greater New Orleans region to help your business grow. Join our four experts, Mike Eckert (NO/LA Angel Network), Shafin Khan (New Orleans BioInnovation Center), Alberto Queral (JEDCO) and Kate Moreano (JEDCO) as they cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Angel Investment
  • How to prep for a meeting with investors/lenders
  • Startup competitions
  • Gap financing
  • Tax Incentives for growing businesses
