The conference, hosted by Access Granted, is designed to give small business owners the tools and information they need to succeed.
MEMPHIS, Tenn – There is a conference especially for small businesses coming to Memphis.
The Access Granted: Freedom, Flexibility, and Pathways to Funding conference plans to equip entrepreneurs in the City of Bluff with the knowledge and resources to access the financing they need to sustain and grow their businesses.
According to capital consultant Seneca Dunmore, the pandemic has created a ton of new business owners, but there are now just as many people having to close their doors due to a lack of capital. Dunmore says she found that many people didn’t even know how to access other financing and growth options, which is why she started this conference.
“Tons of money have been pumped into the economy over the past two years to offset the effects of Covid-19. The only problem with that is that a lot of that money is not allocated to communities of color. It doesn’t reach communities of color,” Dunmore said.
