County Executive Steve Stenger will provide opening remarks and a brief update on 39 North, followed by a panel discussion focused on Nvsted’s potential to grow start-ups in and around St. Louis.
Nvsted is taking crowdfunding for St. Louis area start-ups into the future by connecting bright ideas with capital resources.
Seeking funding or finding investment opportunities shouldn’t be complicated. Nvsted offers a straightforward approach to crowdfunding that makes it easy for investors and business owners to meet in St. Louis. It’s a marketplace that gives St. Louis startups and established businesses the opportunity to offer debt or equity based securities to both unaccredited and accredited investors. The company decides the offering and the public will decide if they invest. Nvsted acts solely as the platform that allows these parties to connect.
The panel includes: Bob Millstone – Managing Partner of Millstone Capital Advisors, Kirk Damman – Lewis Rice Member focused on intellectual property, Jamey Edgerton – Senior Vice President for Business Development and Business Finance for the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, and Peter Dycus – Head of Product Development for Happy Medium. Their discussion will focus on the importance of crowdfunding for entrepreneurs and the benefits that Nvsted can provide by opening up new streams of investment funds to business across the St. Louis region.
