Finance Forum Group
Share |
Each CRTC Forum meets regularly to discuss/exchange resources on a given topic and also has an online forum associated with the group.


The mission of the Finance Forum is to to discuss finance issues relevant to the CRTC membership and provide members with industry-leading information, tools and resources to help them get the funding they need to grow their technology business in the Chesapeake region.

The Forum will supply member companies regular access to a group of experts from both large and small financial institutions, government entities, business consultants and a broad range of funding sources (venture, angel, grants, etc.).

The Finance Forum consists of an on going task force that meets monthly, or every other month.  The Task force decides the topic of Forum Events that would be promoted to CRTC members and the public for their participation.  There are two Forums in 2015, Spring & Fall, with the possibility of holding Quarterly Forums in 2016.  

The Finance Forum will also work with existing Forums at CRTC to possibly augment their Forum presentations.   The B2G Forum as well as Public Policy, may have overlapping topics.
The initial Finance Forum took place on April 22nd on Lending & Credit and below are some areas that were discussed:      
                - Traditional bank financing - Lines of Credit for working capital
                - Equipment leasing and financing
                - Alternative Finance (AAEDC)
                - Real Estate Lending / SBA Lending
                - Capital Finance
