Capital One Bank Dallas is accepting applications for its Getting Down to Business small business development program. The free, seven-month program begins May 17.

Created by Capital One Bank, Getting Down to Business addresses the core needs of a small business.

The program includes a matched savings component up to $2,000 that the business owners can use for operations upon completion of the program. In addition, participants are paired with knowledgeable professionals and volunteers who serve as mentors during the program period.
