Registration is now open for OFN's Small Business Finance Forum, June 18-19 in Chicago! 

Join more than 350 of your peers—including practitioners and leaders from CDFIs, other mission driven lenders, and their partners—for discussions and learnings focused on boosting the impact of small business lending. Now in its eighth year, this year’s event will emphasize delivering responsible financing and technical assistance to minority- and women-led small businesses and businesses seeking less than $250,000 in financing. 

New this year, the Forum will also feature a community development tour at The Hatchery following the closing lunch plenary for those who want to get out and see CDFI small business work on the ground in Chicago.  

Here are just a few of Small Business Finance Forum 2019's confirmed session topics:

  • What's in Your Forecast? Developing a Financial Growth Model for CDFIs
