I was so pleased when my colleague, Jonathan Bragdon made a warm introduction to his friend and colleague, Aunnie Patton.

Aunnie is an author, professor, consultant, and lecturer.

She was working on a project  funded by the US Economic Development Administration and in partnership with Blueprint Local and the Nowak Metro Finance Lab. It builds on her work on alternative financing options for SMEs (including her book: Adventure.Finance). More on the project here: Innovative.Finance. One of the outputs is a playbook: Innovative Financing Models for COVID recovery.

As part of this playbook, she asked me to contribute to  a chapter on Supply Chain Financing. I was honored to contribute to the playbook to give businesses a better understanding of the landscape of alternative financing options.

Here is the article:

Always glad to contribute and help businesses learn more about financing options available to them.
