Marvin Boateng is the Loan Officer at the Economic Development Collaborative of Ventura County. In this Our Ventura TV interview he discusses the EDC-VC as a business resource for companies of all sizes doing business in Ventura County. The non-profit EDC-VC was established in 1996 to promote jobs and economic growth through these key programs and services:
* Business consulting and workshops
* Manufacturing Outreach Program
* G.E.T. Trade, the how-to on international trade
For every $25,000 loaned, they want to see at least one job created. Marvin goes over what it takes to gain funding from the EDC-VC, even for start-up companies.
