  • Credit Underwriting
  • Assessing Equity Investments
  • Conducting Due Diligence
  • Constructing Financial Models
  • Writing Business Plans

Participants will broaden their skills in preparing loan and investment proposals for lenders and equity investors for their clients to present to lenders and equity investors.

The three-day training is $500 for EDN Partners and EDN applicants through partner scholarships, and $1,000 for participants without EDN affiliation – a significant savings from the $4,000+ normal rate.
On September 10th tuition will increase to $600 and $1,100, respectively; so register today!
