About: Mid-West 2002
On Thursday, November 7, 2002 the Women’s Business Development Center and Springboard Enterprises co-hosted Springboard: VC Tune-Up, an educational program designed to help women entrepreneurs raise equity capital for their fast-growth ventures.
This half-day program featured prominent investors and successful entrepreneurs. Panelists discussed their experiences launching and funding high-growth businesses, the facts and recent trends in the equity markets, and what’s involved in raising venture capital. This afternoon was primarily educational in nature but it also helped us meet potential applicants for Springboard: Mid-West 2003.
Following the VC Tune-Up program, entrepreneurs were invited to stay and join Springboard: Mid-West 2003 sponsors and investors for a reception that officially launched the next Mid-West Venture Forum.
