ShadeFund: New Capital for Natural Resource Based Businesses

Join ShadeFund for a free webinar to learn about a new capital source for natural resource based businesses. Green micro enterprises are critical to the development of vibrant communities, resilient economies, and healthy environments. Unfortunately, these businesses - whether they are a community sponsored farm or a wood products company using sustainable lumber - find it tough to raise the affordable capital they need to grow, especially in today's economic climate.

ShadeFund is a national, web-based microloan program (up to $50,000) for green entrepreneurs who use farmland or forestland responsibly. We invite you to participate in a webinar to learn how California microlenders can work together with ShadeFund to ensure that California's green innovators have access to the capital they need to grow.

Register for the webinar on Thursday, September 27, 2012 from 2:00-3:00 pm PT.
