WET Webinar Series: Finding The Right Type of Capital – Venture Capital + “Alternative Venture Capital”
December 11, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Are you a startup that is looking for an alternative approach to the traditional venture capital “treadmill?” Join us on December 11, 2020, at 10 AM! Like many of the businesses we work with at the WET Center, many startups outside of Silicon Valley are not trying to be the next billion-dollar exit from day one. A more measured approach to growth and risk is often healthier for founders and their companies, but unfortunately, many traditional venture investors tune out when the pitch doesn’t include an eight or nine-figure exit. Enter Jamie Finney of the Greater Colorado Venture Fund, who has built his rural Colorado portfolio around the concept that not every startup has to be a massive exit to drive returns and that there is not a one-size-fits-all investment note for each startup. Jamie will discuss how he handles and invests in all sorts of different startups with varying growth outcomes, what he looks for in a company in order to justify lower dilution alternatives, and general recommendations for entrepreneurs looking for something different than high-growth venture capital at the outset. This webinar is FREE and open to the public .
