Become a Venture Affiliate strives to be a bridge to capital for entrepreneurs. We work with individual Angel investors, Angel groups, Venture Capital firms and Private Equity firms. These groups and individuals provide value to the institute by being sponsors, mentors, and participants in educational seminars and by providing feedback to the entrepreneurs that go through our Cooperative Venturing programs. They will also invest if the deal is right.

It is important to remember that not all investor dollars are the same. If you are just beginning your capital-raise process, focus on what you need from the investors other than their money. Is it expertise? Maybe their network can be the tool you need to fuel your growth. Investors have high expectations of their investment return: make sure your vision is aligned to ensure an amicable relationship.

These are some of the investor groups we work with at
