While there is a variety of excellent financing programs for our region, as seen on our Finance Programs page, scaling businesses often need to look at private equity capital as well. Funding sources continue to develop, evolve and/or focus their attention on our region.
Our organization looks to cultivate relationships with these funds to help facilitate potential deal flow for them – some have public sites, and some choose to remain more private. Entrepreneurs themselves have also been very helpful to fellow entrepreneurs by sharing their fundraising experiences, advice and connections.
We encourage you to reach out to us to let us know about your funding plans and needs to assess available resources and connections.
Depending on your stage, industry and use of funds, you may also look into these grant programs.
There are lots of resources to choose from. You can never apply too early but can easily apply too late.
We’re here to help guide you to the best resources to help your business grow. So give us a shout.
