Educating 1 Million Business Owners on SBA Loans in 2021 While Feeding the Hungry
Small businesses and entrepreneurial ventures create jobs and boost the economy. SBA-backed loans help make this happen by offering access to affordable capital. SBA Ignite (powered by MultiFunding) seeks to dispel myths around this important loan program and make information more accessible and easier to understand.
With this in mind, the MultiFunding team has set an ambitious goal:
Educate 1 million small business owners and entrepreneurs about SBA loans in 2021 — while feeding the hungry and helping to create a better world for all.
Our live webinars and library of on-demand seminars are all offered at no charge.
SBA Ignite (powered by MultiFunding) is our gift to the small business community. In lieu of registration fees, participants are encouraged to make a donation to Food Connect, an independent non-profit that supports hundreds of restaurants, food pantries, meal sites and emergency response centers. With headquarters in our hometown of Philadelphia but with a national reach, Food Connect is doing extraordinary work in communities throughout the United States.
