FINANCE YOUR BUSINESS SUMMIT
Sponsorship Opportunities

The Finance Your Business Summit is Marin’s largest, most comprehensive gathering of small-mid size business leaders and funders, designed to connect businesses with the right financing options at whatever stage they are at in their evolution, from start-up to maturity. A wide range of local funding leaders and information sources will be available to serve ventures in the idea and start up stages, such as founder’s funds (savings, lines of credit, credit cards), friends and family funding. For early stage and expansion stages, the summit covers loans, lines of credit, online lending, micro-lending and crowdfunding. For high growth ventures, we introduce angel investors, venture capital and IPOs, and how to prepare and attract investors on attractive terms.

Sponsorship benefits:
● Connect with 200-300 small-mid sized business owners and executives
● Opportunity to increase positive word of mouth, brand awareness and the local business community’s
financial literacy.
● Identify and attract the right business owners and executives based on stage of growth, financing
amount needed, services and relationship fit.
● Connect with potential business-business and channel/reseller partners, such as complementary
lenders or investors, financial advisors, legal, tax and accounting professionals.

Attendee Profile:
The Summit organizers are targeting owners and executives in small to mid size small businesses and non-profits, solopreneurs looking to expand, start-ups, local governmental funding and economic development professionals, financial service professionals, wealth and financial advisors, accountants and attorneys, investors, lenders. In 2015, a similar event drew 300 attendees. There has not been a county-wide summit with the same scope since then.
