Where Is The Money?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Where is the money? There seems to be so much of it out there ripe for the picking for startups around the country. So how do you get it? First it might be wise to slow down, take a deep breath, and see exactly what you are getting into, what options there are for your startup to get off the ground and pick up the financing that it needs. We have a panel of investors and entrepreneurs that ranges from self-financing to angel investors and venture capitalist, all giving a their own perspective and insight to help you decide what is best for your company.
Q&A will follow.
