2/15-Understanding the Capital Ladder @ Atlanta, GA

February 15, 2018

Morgan Stanley

3280 Peachtree Road Northeast


Atlanta, GA 30305


Less than 2% of all startup companies* receive angel or VC investment.

So what other avenues do startup founders have to fund their ventures? That’s the question we will be expoloring at ‘Understanding the Capital Ladder’.

Learn how startups stay afloat in the early stages without outside capital. Find out what other funding opportunities there are through methods such as debt financing and loans. In addition, hear about how to crack the code to get angel/VC funding by learning what they look for in companies they invest in.

This event is a part of our larger Diversity & Inclusion commitment which addresses pain point areas we found after surveying underrepresented entrepreneurs.

Come exlpore this topic with us on Thursday, February 15th in three rapid fire panels with some amazing panelists!
