Part 2: What Are the Alternative Ways to Fund Your Small Business?

The NVTC Small Business and Entrepreneur Committee invites you to join us for the second event in a two-part series focused on funding options for entrepreneurs and startups.

The first event held on March 15 featured a panel of experts that shared the benefits and risks of different funding options for startups from the investor point of view, including crowdfunding, venture capital, equity investment, incubators and accelerators.

Part 2 will highlight entrepreneurs' experiences having raised or participated in the various funding options available. Panelists will address such questions as:

  • How did the entrepreneurs determine which strategy they would pursue in terms of type of funding/support?
  • What criteria did they use in determining their selection and how did they make their final selection?
  • What are their lessons-learned to help the entrepreneurs following them to navigate the entrepreneurial waters more effectively?
