For those gearing up to join us in Chicago next week for the annual Small Business Finance Forum, this year’s Small Business Partner Showcase will be a major highlight. The tradeshow floor will feature products and services for small business-focused CDFIs and other mission-driven lenders, and will include, for the first time, a first Technology Demo of exciting and innovative products.
