Event Details

The reality is there’s just more great ideas than capital! You can have the greatest product unknown to mankind, but zero investors, due to the lack of capital and available investors. Join us along with guest speaker, Andy Cothrel, Entrepreneur In Residence for the Dayton Development Coalition’s Entrepreneurial Signature Program and President of Blue Marble Medical, LLC as we discuss:

  •    the ‘funding ecosystem’ 
  •    drivers of risk and return potential
  •    what investors look for when screening potential deals

Materials will be distributed electronically, so feel free to bring your tablet/laptop and questions along! 


Box Lunch Request (optional)

All attendees have the option of purchasing a box lunch for a $9 fee. The lunch includes a whole sandwich (turkey, ham, or chicken), chips, a pickle, a cookie, and one beverage. Orders for this session will be from The Honey Baked Ham Company.
