All roads don’t lead to Venture Capital funding. With less than 1% of startups getting VC funding, it is essential that founders are informed and realistic about their funding strategy. ITEN Executive Director Mary Louise Helbig will discuss what’s important to consider in deciding what path to capital is right for you.
We will also be announcing our Digital Map Sponsor, Cara Stone, LLP.

He will be discussing information on Missouri’s early stage market including, total deal volume, total capital raised, deal size, deal and capital raised by industry and more.
