Regulatory Rockstars: It isn’t a gameshow, but it makes sense you might be thinking that way. With once in a generation US Government funding being dispersed to reinvigorate entrepreneurship and capital access to startups for post pandemic recovery in our country, how can angel investors be prepared to help portfolio companies access appropriate funds and/or leverage funds available to bring needed support to startups? This session will inform the angel community about upcoming US Government initiatives related to capital access and investment; and illustrate ways in which the angel community can interface key government funds across the country.
Session Learning Objectives:
- The view of key agencies on the role of the early stage capital community in supporting entrepreneurship.
- Opportunities to leverage private funding with USG funding support initiatives.
- The role of the private investment community in regional economic development and opportunities to interface with key government initiatives.
