'Funding Your St. Louis Start-Up' WorkshopEvent Details: 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., March 24, John and Lucy Cook Hall, Anheuser-Busch Auditorium, 3674 Lindell Blvd, Rm. 050, Lower Level, St. Louis, MO, 63108
Saint Louis University's Billiken Angels Network (BAN) will host "Funding Your St. Louis Start-Up" from 6-8 p.m. Monday, March 24, in the Anheuser-Busch Auditorium at SLU's John Cook School of Business, 3674 Lindell Blvd.
The free BAN workshop helps start-up entrepreneurs think about new or different sources for funding, learn more about the types of financing available and what those providing funding are looking for in candidates.
The promise this workshop has made over the years is that everyone will walk away with at least 10 new places to look for money, and audience response has proven this to be the case. Types of funding covered include angel investment, the 3 F's (friends, family and "folk"), government grants, tax credits, banks, microloan programs and crowdfunding. Sources in
Missouri and Illinois are covered and includes ample time for questions.
The speaker is Dr. Jerome Katz, who is often called the "Godfather of St. Louis Startups." Katz is also the founder and director of the Billiken Angels Network, and the head of SLU's nationally-ranked entrepreneurship program.
The workshop is free and open to the public, however seating is limited and registration is required. Preference will be given to entrepreneurs with business plans done or in process. Click here to register.
