In this pre-recorded webinar, we cover the following topics:

  • Low interest working capital loans, lines of credit and tax savings
  • MWBE financing opportunities
  • Bridge/gap financing
  • How “no” from a traditional lender may not be a final “no”

The Erie County Industrial Development Agency (ECIDA), is an independent, public benefit corporation created in 1970 by an act of the New York State Legislature to promote and assist private sector industrial/business development, create jobs, incentivize urban core development, and create economic well-being for the people of Erie County.

The ECIDA is sanctioned by the State of New York to administer tax incentives to qualified business applicants located in Erie County as a public benefit corporation, not part of County government. Their financing services do a lot to help local businesses create jobs and grow so if you aren’t familiar with them, now is your chance to learn about these opportunities and what financing options may be the right fit for you!

Your presenters will be:

  • John Cappellino, ECIDA President and CEO
  • Jerry Manhard, ECIDA Chief Lending Officer
  • Robbie-Ann McPherson, ECIDA Communications and Marketing Director
