FINANCE YOUR BUSINESS SUMMIT
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.
● Connect with 200-300 small-mid sized business owners and executives
