1st Source Bank is increasing their commitment to help veterans become successful small business owners. 

Thursday in South Bend, the bank announced that they were joining the Small Business Administration Veterans Pledge Initiative.  The initiative works to strengthen lending and outreach to veterans looking to start businesses.

1st Source will also be hosting a series of workshops for veterans.  The first is November 12, and topics will include:

  • Guidance for starting a business including the basics of a business plan
  • Government contracting opportunities for business expansion
  • Loans for starting or growing a business
  • How to improve business cash flow
  • How to purchase a building

You need to sign up by November 8 due to limited seating.  If you would like to attend, contact Dave Puls at 317-226-7272 ext.125 or david.puls@sba.gov.
