The large banks have money to lend, yet their unpredictability and stringency concern you. Your company’s revenues are great, your business track record is outstanding and you are a good risk to lend - but think twice before you take the cheap, easy money!

Learn the value of putting together flexible and creative deals with collaborative partners. Having your lenders/investors really understand your business cannot be overstated. Learn from the NVTC Capital Formation Committee’s panel of experts and set your company’s goals on finding investors and lenders who value your company and work with you.

Discussion topics include:
  • Federal market - Not everyone understands that it is a complicated industry and you shouldn't take their money!
  • Attracting investment/lending - Creativity is the order of the day.
  • "Embrace the Pain" - Avoid having your loans called and look beyond the term sheet.
  • Building a roadmap for growth with your lending/investing team.
  • Why smaller, non-VC backed, bootstrapped companies are in high demand.
  • Is interest-only lending still a bad idea?

Partner Lawrence R. Bard moderated this NVTC breakfast panel.
