As part of the Federal Reserve System’s ongoing series Addressing the Financing Needs of Small Business, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond is hosting a small business roundtable. This roundtable is one in a series of forums on small business access to credit and support services being held across the country.
The roundtable will convene small business owners, banks, small business support services and other regional partners to discuss small business financing concerns and share promising practices to help meet the needs of local small businesses. U.S. Representatives Elijah Cummings and John Sarbanes are scheduled to attend the vent to learn more about small business conditions in the state of Maryland.
The purpose of the series is to gather information on local perspectives, as well as national themes, in credit access and technical support for small businesses. The roundtable also will offer the Fed various perspectives from key providers of small business credit and technical assistance about what is working effectively and what practices may be promising for replication in other markets.
Small business owners, government officials and small business technical assistance providers.
