Guidant Financial CEO David Nilssen To Keynote SBA Lending Workshop

BELLEVUE, Wash. - May 9, 2013 // PRNewswire // - David Nilssen , co-founder and CEO of Guidant Financial, will deliver the lunchtime keynote address at today's U.S. Small Business Association (SBA) Lender Conference, "Expanding the SBA Lending Universe," at 12:15 p.m. PDT. The conference for Washington State SBA lenders is taking place at the Museum of Flight in Seattle and will cover timely topics related to SBA lending including critical developments and opportunities, environmental due diligence, managing bankruptcy and receivership, change of ownership transactions, franchise financing, and international trade.

Nilssen, a serial entrepreneur and past recipient of the SBA's 'National Young Entrepreneur of the Year' Award, co-founded Guidant in 2003. Guidant is the leader of non-traditional financing options for small businesses such as rollovers as business startups (ROBS), which allow entrepreneurs to purchase businesses and franchises with retirement funds – without distribution or tax penalties.

Nilssen was invited to speak about Guidant's evolution and continuous growth, outlining the company's approach to key strategic decisions over the years. The presentation will also highlight the company's role in small business financing and how SBA lenders can partner in the transactions, as Guidant assists with traditional financing options such as SBA loans as well.

Since its inception, Guidant has helped over 8,000 entrepreneurs invest over $3 billion in retirement funds to start small businesses throughout the U.S., resulting in over 55,000 jobs thus far.
