Webinar Recap: Small Business Financing to Purchase Owner-Occupied Real Estate

On September 14, 2021, the Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) hosted a webinar in partnership with the NYSBDC network and the US Small Business Administration's (SBA) New York District Office to discuss financing options for small business owners looking to purchase owner-occupied commercial real estate and to review the SBA’s 504 and 7(a) loan programs. As part of the session, a panel of active small business lenders, including Dime Bank, Pursuit and TruFund Financial Services, provided expert advice and an overview of their lending programs.

Pace University SBDC Regional Director Andrew Flamm kicked off the session by providing an overview of small business lending options and key terms, and then introduced SBA New York District Director Beth Goldberg, who provided further insight into SBA loan programs and moderated the panel discussion. The panel also fielded questions from some of the over 200 attendees at the conclusion of the session.


We encourage you to meet with a business advisor from the Pace University SBDC, an SBA resource partner, for help with preparing a loan package, exploring different SBA programs, or otherwise managing your business' growth. A recording of this webinar is available below:
