What is Table Topics?

Our virtual Table Topics feature networking!
Table Topics is a bi-monthly event (February through November) held via Zoom Meeting
that features small group virtual networking and a keynote speaker
focused on communication, business development, or personal development.

For the first 30 minutes of the event, attendees are broken out into small groups to foster connections.
No topic of discussion. Simply time to network.

Questions? Contact WBCS Senior Director of Programs, Elizabeth Garner.

Alternative Funding

In the world of fundraising, most everyone is familiar with the method of borrowing through a conventional bank. Did you know that there are alternatives available beyond community lenders and venture capitalists? Join us as we dip our toes into those two areas - ensuring everyone understands the basics of working with community lenders and venture capitalists - and then take a deep dive into three types of crowdfunding – rewards, microloan, and equity. We’ll review the benefits and drawbacks of each method as well as what you need to move forward, and then focus on a case study with an equity crowdfunding platform. The goal is to arm you with the financial knowledge you need to make the best decision for your business the next time you’re in need of funds.
