The U.S. Small Business Administration Mississippi District Office (SBA) invites you to the Mississippi Meet the Lenders, a Small Business Borrower – Lender Match-Making Event.  This event will provide small business owners and entrepreneurs the opportunity to meet with Banks, Microlenders, Alternative Lenders, and SBA to discuss the availability of SBA loans.

A one-stop forum for business owners and entrepreneurs to:

  • Pitch financing needs to top small business lenders
  • Learn what lenders look for in a winning loan proposal
  • Understand the loan application process

Come prepared with multiple copies of your business plan for distribution.  SBA has a “Build a Business Plan” online tool that guides small business owners through creating a basic, downloadable business plan.  Another great resource is the Mississippi Resource Partners Network.  Call SBA Mississippi office at (601) 965-4378 to locate your nearest counselor for assistance in preparing your business plan. Representatives from Resource Partners Network will be available onsite for individual consultations.   SBA’s Learning Center hosts a variety of self-paced online training courses to help entrepreneurs explore and learn about the many aspects of business ownership.
