Raleigh Convergence is one of the partners in #RaleighRises, a grassroots organization of entrepreneurs and community activists seeking to provide free, targeted assistance to help you navigate both the impact economic catastrophe and the numerous aid resources being deployed at this time.
First up: If you are a small business owner who has attempted to apply for loans from banks in the Central NC region, please help other business owners by sharing your experience in the shared spreadsheet.
As more people enter info into the spreadsheet, it will become a more valuable tool for others. “Our intent is to create a crowdsourced, hyper local resource for any small business owners seeking loans in our area. Your response is anonymous. If you’d like to see statewide aggregated data, please check out this resource as well: covidloantracker.com/data.”
Previously: If you attended #RaleighReacts, an early iteration and training around SBA loans, this is the same group. [watch: What bank should I use for my loan?]
