Your great idea is coming to life. You own a startup company. You're on the verge of big things. But there's one problem: you need money in order to take your business to the next level — you need to raise capital. If this is you, you've come to the right place.
There isn't just one right path to raising funds; it's a challenge with many ways through it. Know your options. From capitalization tables to equity compensation and managing the investment close, learn more about the seminar and other resources to help you build your startup to be successful. Past attendees of this seminar have raised over $45M in capital.
Please note that this seminar is about equity financing and doesn’t primarily cover traditional funding sources such as small business loans and grants.
The Raising Capital Series is produced by the Greater Des Moines Partnership in collaboration with InnoVenture, BrownWinick Law Firm, and UHY Advisors. For more information, contact Diana Wright, Startup Community Builder at the Greater Des Moines Partnership: firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Light continental breakfast, lunch, and light refreshments will be provided. Free parking vouchers will be available for the Partnership Building parking ramp. The event is capped at 40 participants due to room capacity.
ADDED! There will be a bonus option for entrepreneurs and businesses to receive a free 1-hour SWOT analysis of their business as they prepare for funding from a panel of startup experts. The date is set for July 19, 2023 and will be scheduled virtually for startups on a first come, first served basis. More information will be sent out and scheduled prior to the Raising Capital seminar.
