If you missed this event on April 16th, ACCION San Diego, along with over a dozen of community partners, co-hosted an event at the Doubletree hotel in Mission Valley, in sunny San Diego! See more details below -

Also, a similar event, "Small Business Lending & Access to Credit Workshop" is coming up Saturday, May 14th from 8:30 to 12:00pm. This is another event that you do not want to miss. Read more and/or register HERE.
The event filled the rooms near capacity; with the total number of registrants nearly double that. According to ACCION San Diego's Director of Finance, Javier Islas, the event was a huge success, “The atmosphere in the ballroom was absolutely electric” said Islas. "When I attended the workshops, it was obvious that everyone was very engaged, taking a lot in and learning.” He continued “They were extremely well attended, and along with informative panels composed of extremely qualified individuals; it made for a very educational day.”

Nearly 200 business owners attended the Where's the Money Access to Capital Business Expo in San Diego on April 16, 2011, and nearly double that number RSVP’d.  Attendees left the workshop even more energized than when they arrived, and felt that the event was incredibly informative, insightful and useful for their business needs.
