GEWKC Funding Showcase: Fund Your Business When Venture Capital Isn't an Option

Thursday, November 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm • Organized By KCSourceLink
1722 E 17th Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64108


Venture capital gets a lot of attention, but the bad news is less than 1 percent of startups raise outside equity capital. The good news is you can build a successful company without equity investment.

  • Top funding sources:
    - Personal savings and credit
  • - Sales
  • - Friends and family
  • - Microloans
