Craft3: Get the Financing You Need

The Seattle Chamber is pleased to announce the second in their “How to do Business With…” series designed to help small businesses connect and do business with large corporations. At this session, Sue Taoka, Executive Vice President, Craft3, and a distinguished group of finance experts, will share their knowledge, insights and tips on how to “close the deal for a loan.”

Craft3 is a non-profit community development financial institution with a mission to strengthen economic, ecological and family resilience in Pacific Northwest communities. They provide loans and assistance to entrepreneurs, non-profits, individuals and others who don’t normally have access to financing. They complement these financial resources with their expertise, networks and other advocacy services.

Meet the Craft3 experts who will lead the following discussions:

  • Arnie Gunderson: Has your bank turned you down? – Let’s see what we can do.
  • Walter Acuna: Lending to start-ups – what you need to know
  • Carol Lee: Why is my lender asking for so much paper?
  • Andy Wolz: Consumer energy lending
  • Greg Bradley: What does credit mean?
