We’ve talked about what it’s like to run your own business and be an entrepreneur. But what if you’re just getting started? This week, representatives from ECDI talk about how they help businesses get going and the financing options that they have available.

Our first interview is with Founder & CEO Inna Kinney, who shares the story of ECDI and talks about the classes, assistance and programs that they offer to entreprenurs. The second interview is with ECDI President Steve Fireman who talks more about the financing options available to startups and small businesses who are seeking loans.
