A Founder's Tale: How to Raise Capital in the MidWest

Thursday, May 23 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm • Organized By Plexpod
300 East 39th Street, Kansas City, MO 64111


Raising capital is a grind and statistically, most founders will never raise a dime. This fireside chat will have a moderated panel of founders that have been through the gauntlet and made it out on the other side (with the scars to prove it). Expect a raw and uncut version of their journeys, things to avoid, and best practices directly from the source. A Q&A will follow so be sure to have your questions ready.

Rockstar panelists include Toby Rush (ANT Financial), Rachael Qualls (Venture360), Jeff Rohr (SquareOffs), Tyler VanWinkle (Rivet), Callie England (WallyGrow), Roy Scott (Healthy HipHop), and Bo Lais (Lula).
