Feedback form is now closed.
The adage of “don’t put all your eggs into one basket” is especially true when figuring out how to finance a small business. Every entrepreneur needs to understand the importance of diversifying investment sources; from angel investment to venture capital and even equity crowd funding; each option has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Join us for a panel discussion about the importance and process of choosing the right investment source for your startup. The panel of experts will review non-traditional funding options as well as showcase the advantages of each one. One example that will be highlighted is numo, PNC Bank’s fintech build incubator that exists to create startups, which is revolutionizing the philosophy behind financial institution-owned innovation entities. Participants will leave the event with a robust understanding of investment opportunities for their next venture.
