Boston, MA – This week, TriNet and the Small Business Digital Alliance will host a fireside chat with Administrator Guzman of the U.S. Small Business Administration and Samantha Wellington, EVP of Business Affairs, Chief Legal Officer & Secretary at TriNet on access to capital and how small businesses and entrepreneurs can navigate the funding jungle.

Among the many hurdles entrepreneurs must overcome, navigating through the dense financial terrain can be a real pain point. This discussion will center on how and where small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) can find and access capital and the issues that may entangle the development of small businesses—including how the funding landscape has changed, the various ways an entrepreneur can financially support their business, and where to hunt down what’s available from government programs, grants, and incentives.

“When building a business, access to capital is critical to entrepreneurs and the success of their business,” said Samantha Wellington, EVP of Business Affairs, Chief Legal Officer & Secretary at TriNet. “I am honored to discuss this very important topic with SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman.”

Speakers include:

• SBDA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman
• Samantha Wellington, EVP of Business Affairs & Chief Legal Officer & Secretary, TriNet
