Previously Recorded NFIB Webinar:
How to Use Online Funding
Wednesday, May 18th at 12pm ET
Running a business is hard work, but getting funding shouldn’t be. Access to working capital is crucial for you to fill cash flow gaps, hire employees, buy inventory or invest in equipment.
With so many lending options available, it can be confusing to determine the right lender – and right time – for funding. Join us as Kathryn Petralia, COO of Kabbage Inc., sheds light on how small businesses can get the funding they need quickly and securely.
During the webinar, we’ll cover:
- The ins and outs of today’s lending options
- How to determine the right time to pursue funding
- How online funding differs from traditional lenders
Presenter: Kathryn Petralia,
COO, Kabbage Inc.
When Rob Frohwein shared his idea for Kabbage with COO Kathryn Petralia, she immediately saw the value in using technology to reexamine lending. She believed funding decisions could be automated based on access to real-time data generated by numerous business operations rather than a lengthy, manual process.
Before co-founding Kabbage, Kathryn spent nearly 20 years working with large and small companies focused on credit, payments and ecommerce. As someone who camped her way down the west coast to launch an ecommerce startup in the mid-90s, Kathryn can appreciate the lengths to which small businesses have gone to access capital.
She also served as Vice President of Strategy for Revolution Money, an Internet-based credit card startup, and was a corporate development executive with CompuCredit Corporation, where she was responsible for entering new markets, developing products and establishing strategic alliances.
