Forming New and Affiliated CDFI Entities
When: June 16-17, 2015
Where: Baltimore Branch of the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank, Baltimore, MD
This workshop is part of the CDFI Fund’s “Expanding CDFI Coverage in Underserved Areas” Capacity Building Initiative Training Series.
Provided by OFN in partnership with the Community Development Venture Capital Alliance (CDVCA), the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions (NFCDCU), and the Community Development Bankers Association (CDBA), this session is designed for participants that are interested in forming a new CDFI loan fund or venture capital fund. The workshop is also relevant for existing CDFI banks, credit unions, loan funds, and venture capital funds that are interested in forming new, legally-affiliated CDFI entities within their existing organizational structure to serve new, underserved markets. Participants will learn to analyze unmet financial services needs in underserved markets, to evaluate the role of affiliated legal structures in serving target markets, and how to start a loan or venture capital fund.
All of the “Expanding CDFI Coverage in Underserved Areas” workshops are free of charge to participants; however, workshop attendees are responsible for their own travel, food, and incidental costs.
