July 20, 2017

GREATER DES MOINES, IA  – Startup company founders in Greater Des Moines (DSM) will have the opportunity to learn from other entrepreneurs and startup investors on how to successfully raise capital for their startups at the Raising Capital Seminar on Thursday, Sept. 21. The event is hosted by Square One DSM, an initiative of the Greater Des Moines Partnership, and the BrownWinick Law Firm. It will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the BrownWinick Law Firm, 666 Grand Ave. #2000.

The Raising Capital Seminar’s speakers will include local experts, including entrepreneurs and angel investors. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from entrepreneurs who have been in their position as well as investors who directly fund startup companies. Topics will include how to raise money, how to find and secure money from investors and how to maintain relationships with angel investors after obtaining funding.

“The Raising Capital Seminar will help startup founders jumpstart the process of securing equity capital to get their business off the ground,” said Mike Colwell, Executive Director of Entrepreneurial Initiatives at the Greater Des Moines Partnership. “Attendees can learn from the people who are best equipped to help them — people who make funding decisions and people who have previously raised capital for a business.”

More details on speakers and a full agenda will be released in coming weeks. Startup founders are encouraged to sign up quickly as space is limited. Registration is $30.
