The Money Matters Workshop is a special program for M/W/DBE construction contractors sponsored by NYCEDC, BOC Capital, and Columbia University. Applicants will learn to better manage the financial side of their business, including how to:
- Build and maintain good business credit—a cornerstone of business success
- Look at projects from a cash flow perspective, allowing a more strategic approach to their business as a whole
- Find flexible financing such as NYCEDC’s Kick-Start Loan Program
This workshop series combines six classes with intensive, individual business counseling to help build financial capacity and prepare for loans.
