Accessing capital can be essential for business growth, yet many founders with disabilities report experiencing significant barriers. Come and join our five-part webinar series to hear from Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) who have found ways to increase inclusion and from disability owned businesses on how they obtained the capital they needed.

Who should attend:

  • Entrepreneurs with disabilities looking for information on accessing capital and how CDFI lending differs from that of traditional banks
  • CDFIs with a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion who wish to ensure they are meeting the needs of business owners with disabilities
  • Entrepreneurial and other support organizations looking for information to assist their customers to access capital and other financial health supports.

Please note: ASL interpretation and real-time captioning will be provided for all webinars.
