Join SBN for an interactive workshop with experts from M&T Bank and PIDC on pathways for values-driven businesses to manage debt.


As most sustainable businesses prepare to rebound post the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as other challenges, debt management remains a crucial way of survival.

What tools and resources exist to ensure their financial health and stability in the years to come?

There will also be time to network over snacks provided by Riverwards Produce. Guests are also encouraged to join a happy hour immediately following the program.
