Jul 14, 2016

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Clark Hill attorneys Sandra S. Hamilton and Jeff Van Winkle discuss accessing and managing funds in a complicated and evolving regulatory environment in the Clark Hill Small Business Guide: Access to Capital.

When small business owners are surveyed, “access to capital” almost always ranks at or near the top of one of the greatest challenges facing small businesses. Navigating the options for funding in a post-recession economy is increasingly difficult. Even more important for an entrepreneur is determining how to maintain or manage capital once it is secured.

Hamilton and Van Winkle provide guidance on how small businesses can obtain and successfully manage funding with the right planning and preparation.
