Moving the Northwest Wisconsin Advantage Forward – Virtual

March 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Please join us for a discussion on financial preparation, current programs and resources as well as government contract opportunities for Northwestern Wisconsin businesses.

Moving the Northwest Wisconsin Advantage Forward will be about making sure your business is financially fit BEFORE accepting additional funding or government contract and developing new market opportunities.

With lending changes and new lending programs due to COVID-19, if you want to take advantage of recovery lending from a traditional or public revolving loan fund to complete your contract obligation, you need to make sure your company is financially fit enough first. This session will cover pitfalls of taking a loan just because it seems the advantage is there, and having it cost you in the long run. Also, currently available government contracting opportunities will be highlighted – potentially a new and long term customer.
