Columbus Funds | June 17
Join SocialVentures and the Ohio Small Business Development Center at Columbus State (SBDC) for our next Columbus Funds event. You’ll learn about Community Development Financial Institutions and how they play an important role in generating economic growth and opportunity. By financing community businesses—including small businesses, microenterprises, nonprofit organizations, commercial real estate, and affordable housing—CDFIs spark job growth and retention in hard-to-serve markets nationally.
You’ll also hear from lenders from the Finance Fund and ECDI and learn how to get deals funded, and we’ll welcome Omar D’ Angelo, owner of Barroluco Argentine Comfort Food, and hear about his experiences getting his business financed.
Featured speakers will include:
Omar D’Angelo, owner of Barroluco Argentine Comfort Food
Anne Geggie, Vice President of Lending at Finance Fund
Jerry Archambault, Executive Vice President at ECDI
The cost to attend is $10 per person. Registration is required as space is limited. Light refreshments will be provided.
