The Funding Puzzle: Presented by UMKC's E-Scholars OpenAccess

A frequent refrain from entrepreneurs looking to start and scale new businesses and ventures is the need for capital. Depending on the nature of the new venture, very different funding strategies may be called for, ranging from debt to equity, and from rewards-based crowdfunding to grants, and more. The Regnier Institute's E-Scholars program will open its doors to the public during GEW, for a discussion of what different types of funders need to see when investing in entrepreneurs. Panelists will include Firebrand VC, local angels, and others.
