Business Boot Camp – Day 2 – Finance: Accessing Capital
May 22 @ 3:30 pm – May 22 @ 5:00 pm

One of the most common and frustrating questions for a small business owner is “Where can I get financial support for my business?” Sometimes they may be looking for a short term boost to help them through a new, exciting intiative. Other times they may be looking for a long term financial backstop.

Understanding how, why and when to access capital can be the difference between business success and failure.

Join us for session two of Springfield Chamber’s Business Boot Camp – Finance: Accessing Capital. In this session we will hear from several capital experts, describing the many varied forms of capital available and what they look for as funding agents.

The Home Planet
May 24 @ 7:30 pm – Jun 8 @ 9:30 pm

It has been 50 years since humans landed on the Moon. Maybe you remember? In 1969, when astronauts looked back at the Earth from space, they fell in love with “the Blue Planet,” and the photos they sent back changed us all. THE HOME PLANET is a poetic, visual, and musical journey celebrating the hope inspired by those first photos and our stories of connection to the blue planet we call home. This collaboration with composer/performer Cullen Vance exalts the sustaining beauty of that historic moment and the call of our own moment in history.
