New Bedford, MA - March 14, 2019 - The New Bedford Economic Development Council (NBEDC) would like to invite entrepreneurs in the greater New Bedford area to join them in their new conference room for the third in a series of six small business development workshops.

Join Cliff Robbins, senior business advisor with the MSBDC, to gain an understanding of the sources of capital to start a business, develop a capital strategy to fit any stage of your business, mentally prepare for the pros & cons of different funding sources, and rule out sources that will only be frustrating and a dead end.
