We kicked off spring with a Capital Raise Bootcamp!
On March 2, the Technology Venture Studio hosted the Capital Raise Bootcamp, giving founders raising capital the chance to dig in to some critical aspects of raising funds. The daylong intensive boot camp ended with a panel of local founders who have successfully raised capital to grow their businesses.
