This two-day course on line course will provide attendees with a strong understanding of the finance and incentive programs that are available and utilized in Ohio. Through interactive case studies, discussions, and speakers, the course will also give students the opportunity to work through real-world examples of how incentives are utilized. This will include both program details and how the programs are utilized in practice. The course will cover how the private capital markets work, public and private sector financing programs (such as JobsOhio, SBA, USDA, New Markets Tax Credits, etc.) along with incentives such as property and income tax credits, tax abatements, and grants at both the state and federal levels.
The on-line course will include extensive opportunities to network with presenters and panelists, as well as being enhanced with discussion about how the COVID 19 pandemic could impact capital markets, public and private sector financing programs, and the ability of businesses to obtain financing.
