Columbus Funds is a joint program of SocialVentures and the Ohio Small Business Development Center at Columbus State designed to bring together speakers and panelists to discuss all things funding.

The bi-monthly event takes place in an informal setting and features speakers and panelists  who represent small businesses and their investors and lenders. In addition to guest speakers and a panel Q&A and discussion, attendees are always welcome to ask questions during the formal panel discussion or during informal networking before and after the program.
