Feedback on “How to Finance a Black Women-owned Business in 2018”

Image
We recently held a series of webinars designed “to help black women business owners discover various ways to land capital.” The webinars, titled, “How to Finance a Black Women-owned Business in 2018” were held on July 18th, August 10th and August 24th. The feedback from the webinars is good. Eighty five percent (85%) of the respondents to our customer satisfaction survey found the webinar useful. Seventy one percent (71%) rated the webinar excellent. Of the forty or so women on the webinar (and they were all women) forty two percent (42%) have just started looking for business financing. Fourteen percent (14%) have been looking for business financing over the past one to six months, and twenty eight percent (28%) have been looking over the past six to twelve months. Fourteen percent (14%) have not attempted to get financing yet, but are simply exploring options. This dovetails with the recent efforts we have observed in this sector. T
