Finding financing to grow a small business is a common challenge for food entrepreneurs, traditional bank financing can be hard to get and funding programs are often confusing. To help shed some light on the process, we have teamed up with The Entrepreneur's Space to host a financing workshop and networking event.

Our presenters from New York Business Development Corporation (NYBDC) and Accion will provide information on the NYC Food Manufacturers Growth Fund and other opportunities available for financing the growth of your business. In addition to information on both organization's financial products, NYBDC and Accion staff will also provide guidance on what lenders are looking for and advise on how to craft a competitive application. This is a great opportunity to speak with lenders about your specific situation.
Food and drinks will be provided.

When: July 10, 2014
Where: The Entrepreneur Space, 36-46 37th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101
Time: 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Cost: Free

This 3-day class (7/10, 7/17, and 7/24) QuickBooks course aims to provide the technical know-how for people looking to learn how to use this program effectively. 

Please note this class is for the Windows version of QuickBooks. While it has the same functions as the Mac version, the interface is very different.

In this class you will:

Work hands-on with QuickBooks.

Please note that this class fills up extremely quickly. If it is full, please add your name to the waiting list.

Why take a class on Quickbooks?

- Because your receipts fade and storage of your data is difficult without it. (You can link transactions and make things much easier if you are ever audited). 
- Quickbooks helps you create analytic reports you can use to make better business decisions and keep your bookkeeping tight.
- Because MS Excel is not made for bookkeeping! You lose out on power information created by QB reports.
- Save money come tax time. Save between 5 hours/month of manual entry and over $4,200 a year come tax time by using QuickBooks.*
- Manual entries and bank statement importation can create lost transactions and no reconciliation. 

*Based on normal retainer fee paid for bookkeeping.

This class is part of the NYC Small Business Tech Coalition, funded by the NYCSBS and Citi Community Development.
