Event will highlight bank, private equity, state and federal sources of financing available today.
The Waukesha County Chamber of Commerce Manufacturing Alliance will hold the seminar “Access to Capital During & After the Recovery” on Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 7 a.m. at the Brookfield Suites Hotel & Convention Center, 1200 S. Moorland Rd., Brookfield.
The event will include a panel discussion including:
- Mary Perry, area district director with the Wisconsin Department of Commerce
- Dennis Sampson, senior vice president with First Business Bank-Milwaukee
- Paul Stewart, managing director, PS Capital Partners LLC
- Mary Trimmier, economic development specialist with the U.S. Small Business Administration
The event will be facilitated by Keith Bergen, regional account manager with the Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership.
The event will examine sources of capital for Wisconsin-based manufacturers – which will become more important if economic conditions improve, Sampson said.
“Companies may be starting to see some traction and sales starting to go up,” he said. “When things turn around, they will desperately need cash to build inventory and fund receivables.
“We’re also going to talk tactically about what they should plan for and what they should discuss with their lenders to improve their odds of getting the capital they need as they expand or ramp (production) back up.”
The event is $25 for pre-paid chamber members, $30 for members at the door, and $40 for non-members. To register, click here.
