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 from both sides of the negotiating table to introduce attendees to local sources of capital.

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.
