Effectively raising capital is crucial for any company. Although VC's are a traditional source of funds, there are many opportunities for financing that can get your company to where you need it to be. You just need to know the right people.
Join our panel to hear from private wealthy individuals, government granting agencies, foundations, angels and VCs who have opportunities for you to fund your company.
Our Panel discussions are candid, interactive and informal. We want you to walk away with the real story behind how things work so you can make it happen yourself. This Panel will be followed by a Networking Reception.
