Every year public agencies provide billions of dollars in loan guarantees for small business enterprises. Despite this investment, many entrepreneurs are unable to secure the financing they need to expand and generate jobs. Join us for a private investment and public agency forum with high ranking and highly visible speakers in a discussion of public credit subsidy programs and potential incentives for organizing and financing small business credit enhancements.
This financial workshop is intended to examine methods for organizing and financing small business credit enhancement programs to meet a series of vital tests. Join us as we work together to propose practical solutions to address the policy and regulatory issues raised by a customized pilot model aimed at addressing underserved markets in California.
