Developing companies seeking financing are invited to participate in a free 45-minute webinar on a topic that specifically addresses what’s on their minds: “Access to Financing and Capital: What Are Lenders and Investors Looking For?”
This online workshop will be delivered on Wednesday, May 31 at 10 a.m. via Zoom by facilitator-trainer Isabelle Saleh of Toronto, Ontario, who is a Chartered Professional Accountant and financial and wellness coach on behalf of the national Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) organization.
This second webinar in the Financial Literacy for Entrepreneurs series is offered in collaboration with the Rural Action Centre of Wellington and the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI.
