Silent Barn Public Meeting # 15: How To Fund DIY Creative Enterprises

Panel Moderated by: Michael Lawrence – Attorney for Silent Barn & Owner of Lawrence Law

What are the best sources of funding for DIY Creative Enterprises? Ever since the housing bubble and the great recession of 2008, traditional means of funding start up businesses like bank loans have become more difficult to obtain and new modes of accessing capital like crowd-funding and micro-lending are more prevalent. Our panelists, who work at banks, crowd-funding & membership platforms, and are advisors to arts companies will take you through the whole funding process....discussing the increasing number of resources prospective DIY business owners have at their disposal to fund the start of their creative enterprises. Panelists will also address the steps prospective business owners can take to put themselves in the best possible position to access capital.
