There’s no time like the present for having a good idea in Brooklyn. Whether you’re a Harvard MBA or just some guy or gal with a recipe and a dream, your baby of a brainchild could grow up to be the next big thing. Provided, of course, that you’ve got a handle on those pesky things like credit, capital and a viable business plan to carry it all through. If not, here’s your chance to get started. CAMBA, a Flatbush-based life-enhancing nonprofit, is offering a series of free business development workshops over the coming weeks that should do a bit to help you get your great idea the ground.
Business Loan Informational Session: Thurs. Jul. 22 (tonight)
It’s a fact of business—it takes money to make money. Luckily you can borrow other people’s money until you make your own, and this is where you find out how. CAMBA offers small business loans in amounts up to $15,000. Learn about loan requirements, process, and timeframe from application to approval.
10 a.m., 884 Flatbush Ave. at Church Avenue, 2nd floor
Free Money For Your Business: Tues. Jul. 27
Assuming you like free money, this seminar sounds like a worthwhile couple of hours. There are literally millions of dollars out there just waiting for a clever businessperson like you to put them to good use. Find out where to find the literally millions of dollars out there waiting to be put to good use. And how to get them.
3 p.m., 884 Flatbush Ave. at Church Avenue, 2nd floor
Surviving Debt and Rebuilding Your Credit: Tues. Aug. 3
We all make mistakes (except for those of us who just get screwed-over by vindictive insurance companies or their cohorts). Regardless, your credit score can be incredibly important. Learn how to read your credit report, deal with debt collectors, contest bad marks on your credit that you don’t deserve, and more.
11 a.m., 884 Flatbush Ave. at Church Avenue, 2nd floor
