Join our panel of experts as we discuss ways to uncover capital through loans, grants, funding programs, and angel investors. Panelists include angel investor and Managing Director of Golden Seeds, LLC, Frances Spark, Women’s Enterprise Development Center’s Veronica Bazan, and HVCU Commercial Lending Officer Diane Elias.
