What you Need to Know to Avoid Costly Mistakes.


Whether you’re a business owner, CEO, CFO, VP of finance, controller, or hold any position in a company with fiduciary responsibility, this livestream is an opportunity for you to stay informed about the latest funding trends and options. The Funding Strategies Conference is designed to educate your company’s financial leadership with unbiased information. Our goal is to provide you with the critical information you need to present sound recommendations to your company’s leadership.


Connect with financial leaders from across various business markets at The Funding Strategies Conference. The line-up allows you to interact with experts in the financial lending field to better anticipate market trends, leverage your assets for growth, and make plans to achieve your long-term business goals.


Due to an overwhelmingly positive response to The Funding Strategies Conference’s first event in May 2022, The Funding Strategies team has created a free, live-streamed bi-monthly webinar series to discuss market trends and funding strategies.


This livestreamed event in the series offers you the opportunity to interact with leaders from every segment of the financial industry. Mingle with bankers, independent lenders, venture capitalists, angel investors, private equity, fund managers, and more.


Our panelists include:

  • Sylvia Blount, Associate Director, Bardi Co.

  • Donald Noble, Partner, Florida CFO Group

  • Adam Weber, Managing Director, CrowdOut Capital


The moderator is:


  • Craig Stacy, Managing Director, Sunbelt Business Brokers of Tampa



To meet the needs of the marketplace, ThermoCredit and The Funding University have partnered to create the Funding Strategies Conference, a free bi-monthly event with industry experts discussing what you need to know about capital for the coming year.


The virtual event brings together financial leaders from across the business spectrum. Tap into this tremendous wealth of knowledge to better anticipate market trends, leverage your assets for growth, and achieve your goals in 2022 and beyond.


Whether you are seeking funding for expansion, acquisition, recapitalization, infrastructure upgrades, or working capital, The Funding Strategies Conference will help you better understand the different types of loans available to you, as well as their benefits and pitfalls.

The panel will be followed by a Q & A session, so you can direct specific questions to our experts.




2022 and 2023 are expected to be years of both inflation and volatility. Now more than ever, you must understand all of your financial options to ensure the success of your business. Owners who understand their lending options and are able to adapt to market changes will benefit in the days to come. Prepare for expansion, acquisitions, and recapitalization with help from a panel of those in the know. 

​We designed our event to deliver the information that today’s savvy financial executives need to know before finalizing business plans and searching for funding sources. The information is educational, and objective, and guests will have the opportunity to ask specific questions of the panelists.




The next free, live-streamed Funding Strategies Conference webinar will take place on Thursday, October 6, 2022. Our one-hour panel discussion will go from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET. The webinar will be available for viewing shortly after the event via our sponsor’s websites.


On October 6, 2022, our discussion topic will be:


Opportunity Funding—The Path to Smart Growth Through Acquisition and Expansion. This webinar will focus on funding, how to find the right kind of capital for your company, what you need to know when you are seeking funding, and funding trends for the next 18 to 24 months.


There is no charge to participate in the livestream, but registration is required.  Space is limited.
