The Maine Center for Entrepreneurs and Preti Flaherty are partnering to present Equity Pathways - a series of workshops designed to help entrepreneurs understand the available options and mechanics of fundraising, whether or not to raise capital, various early-stage funding opportunities, and how to become investor-ready. Each workshop will focus on a key element of raising capital in a talk and discussion format.

Workshop 2:  Non-Equity Financing for Startups

Many entrepreneurs, particularly small business owners, rely on debt and other non-equity sources of capital to finance their ventures.  Sara Moppin will discuss the different non-equity avenues available to startups, including traditional bank financing options, awards, grants, SBA loans, GoFundMe and other sources to fund your business without selling your equity.  Equally important, she’ll address the legal considerations for each of these options.
