Breaking Down the Access to Capital Barriers for Women-Owned Businesses

Whether it’s for the start-up or growth phase, most businesses need to borrow money. For women trying to launch, scale, or grow their business, access to capital continues to be a hurdle. In fact, only 31% of women who sought funding for their business were successful, according to a recent survey by SCORE.1

But don’t let that stark statistic deter you from actively seeking capital.

In this episode of our Women-Owned Wednesday podcast, Key4Women Director Barb Smith talks with KeyBank experts Mike Van Vierzen, senior SBA sales representative; Nicole M Vogt, vice president, business banking relationship manager; and Lorie Spinks, branch manager, about the tools and resources available to you. And the steps you can take to better position yourself to receive funding.
