SBA PROGRAMS OVERVIEW

Do you know all the free assistance you can receive with SBA and our resource partners? During our SBA programs overview we will share with you a great resource for small businesses.  You will want to bring a laptop or smartphone because this will be one jam packed hour of information that you will not want to miss. Presented by Marci Posey.

MARKETING RESEARCH AND COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS

Market research blends consumer behavior and economic trends to confirm and improve your business idea.  It’s crucial to understand your consumer base from the outset. Market research lets you reduce risks even while your business is still just a gleam in your eye.

Competitive analysis helps you learn from businesses competing for your potential customers. This is key to defining a competitive edge that creates sustainable revenue. Your competitive analysis should identify your competition by product line or service and market segment.  Presented by David Reardon.

USING LENDER MATCH

Trying to find a lender for your small business? SBA has an online tool called LenderMatch that matches small businesses with participating SBA lenders. LenderMatch begins with a simple on line form that requests basic information about your business and financing needs.          Presented by Marci Posey. 

Registration is required as seating is limited. Registration can be made on–line at www.lfsbdc.org on the Workshops/Events dropdown or contact David Reardon at 540-727-0638 or email: dreardon@lfcc.edu to Reserve your Seat.
