Wilmington’s business landscape may be going through an evolution, but it’s still very much a banking town. And, with financial companies themselves evolving into tech companies, that probably won’t be changing anytime soon.
But how do you, as a small business or startup, even begin to land a bank as a client?
That’s a question “Doing Business With the Banks,” a two-hour program for Delaware Innovation Week 2017, aims to answer.
With representatives from M&T Bank, JPMorgan Chase and WSFS giving talks and an interactive panel, you’ll learn the best ways to do business with them, including the requirements involved, the importance of cyber security and what it takes to win a contract or bid.
