SocialVentures' Columbus Funds April 2019 Event

Looking for capital? Not sure what you are getting into? Loans are a time-tested way to fund growth of your business, but you need to know more than the interest rate and the repayment schedule. Hear Lindsay Karas Stencel, general partner of NCT Ventures and LKS Law talk about the “other” issues you need to think about before signing on the dotted line.  
Lindsay’s opening remarks will be followed by a panel featuring Virginia Nunes, co-founder of Bottoms Up Coffee Co-Op, who financed her business with Finance Fund.  She will be joined on the panel by an additional borrower and, representing the lending side, by Lindsay Karas Stencel and Andre Gibson of Sycamore Commercial Lending LLC.
Bring your questions during the formal session or during informal networking with the panelists before and after the program.  Beer and pizza will be provided.
