Small Business Lending the Hot Topic at June Seminar

New Windsor, N.Y. – June 15, 2010 – Small business lending is the hot topic at this month’s Orange County Business Accelerator (OCBA) Entrepreneur Knowledge Series event.

On Wednesday, June 23, the Accelerator will offer advice on finances, lending and more for small businesses at its offices at 4 London Ave. in New Windsor, N.Y. The guest speaker, Mid-Hudson Small Business Development Center Director Arnaldo Sehwerert, will discuss lending and other best business practices for small businesses across the Hudson Valley.

The event will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; lunch will be served. Cost is $10 per person and includes a tour of the Accelerator. College students are FREE.

The Accelerator invites small business owners, entrepreneurs and others in the business community involved in the financial world to take advantage of this valuable opportunity.

OCBA Enterprise Development Director Peter J. Gregory said, “As the growing business community in Orange County and the Hudson Valley looks to bounce back during this economic climate, it is crucial that organizations like the Accelerator provide a foundation for important issues such as lending, marketing and other small business development topics at a time when businesses need it most. Without proper direction, entrepreneurs will not be able to move forward.”

Sehwerert added, “The Mid-Hudson Small Business Development Center offers many products that help small businesses adapt to market trends, obtain feasible capital, create effective marketing plans, and more. Attendees at the Accelerator’s event on June 23 will learn what it takes to get back to basics, and achieve their true potential.”

The Entrepreneur Knowledge Series has proven to be a great asset to businesses around the Hudson Valley and surrounding regions. Scheduled for the fourth Wednesday of every month, the events have helped educate public officials, planning board members and business owners on the latest business development technologies and tactics. Previous topics include corporate sustainability, patents, clean energy, cloud computing and social media.
