About this event

R&D Credit: Tax Savings for Your Startup

A discussion about federal and state research, development tax credits, and how you can potentially put money back in your pocket. Don't leave available tax savings on the table!

VIRTUAL Startup Investing 101

Startup Investing 101 is an educational program for individuals who have the financial capacity to invest $5,000+ in a startup at the pre-seed or seed stage.

Each month, attendees learn something new about startup investing, meet fellow funders and founders, listen to pitches, and have the opportunity to invest directly into a startup.

The Startup Ladies is a leader in helping founders secure PRE-SEED funding. Pre-seed money is the first “round” of funding typically sourced from friends, family, accelerators and some angel investors. Pre-seed money allows the founder and her team to achieve defined benchmarks. Examples of key milestones and expenses include hiring key staff, developing and testing a product or service, gaining traction by accruing emails and followers and/or acquiring customers. Reaching the milestones helps the founder secure additional funding in later rounds so the company can continue to scale.

Unless a founder is independently wealthy, she can operate for only a limited time with her own savings. Securing pre-seed capital is extremely difficult for founders without access to networks of affluent people conditioned to write checks for risky ventures. This problem is even greater for entrepreneurs who are women.

In 2019, women received less than 3% of the $136.5 billion invested into U.S. startups, despite the fact that their companies yielded higher ROIs than their male counterparts.
