SBA’s Milwaukee office to hold “Turbo Chat” event
The Milwaukee office of the Small Business Administration will hold a “Turbo Chat” forum on June 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon at the Italian Community Center, 631 E. Chicago St., Milwaukee.
The event will allow small business owners and entrepreneurs to meet one-on-one with four different lenders from regional banks. Business owners will be asked to give a five to seven minute elevator pitch on their company’s financial needs, and will receive immediate feedback from lenders.
“We recognize that small business is critical to our economic recovery and strength and the ‘Turbo Chat’ forum is an additional way we can assist Wisconsin’s small business communities in growing stronger,” said Eric Ness, Wisconsin’s district director with the SBA.
Interested companies are asked to register for the event by May 21 at www.sba.gov/wi.
The Wisconsin Entrepreneurs Conference will be held June 8-9 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Milwaukee Airport, 6401 S. 13th St., Milwaukee. This year’s conference will include presentations from Dave Berkus, past chairman of Tech Coast Angels, the nation’s largest angel network, and twice an Inc. 500 CEO; Sue Marks, founder and CEO of Pinstripe Inc., a national leader in recruitment process outsourcing; Robert Okabe, managing director of RPX Group and a pioneer in Chicago angel network; and Eric Apfelbach, CEO of ZBB Energy, and a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $100 million for his companies.
