Women Motivating Women Power Panel 

Are you looking to raise capital for your business or seeking early-stage seed funding to initiate your launch? Do you find yourself being overwhelmed by all the options? Choosing the right resource can be complicated and, let's face it, risky. Where do you start looking for a funder? Do you go for a bank loan or turn to non-traditional lenders like OnDeck? Maybe you're assessing an equity line of credit with Kabbage or considering a crowdfunding campaign? Or maybe your plan is to go big so you're seeking VC funding.  

Whatever your objective, the best place to start is getting some practical advice from women who have already been through it. Learn about the pros/cons of the various alternatives and what funders look for in applicants. Now is your chance to ask those burning questions and get some inspiration to make your big move and start raising capital.

Our panel of amazing, driven female entrepreneurs will discuss how they financed their business, the challenges they faced along the way, and tips for entrepreneurs seeking funding. The panel has experience in crowdfunding, loans, bootstrapping, attracting investors, and alternative sources of funding.
