California Gold – How to Raise Capital through Venture Capital, Private Equity and Crowd Funding

March 12, 2015

California has established itself as the global leader in internet, technology and industrial advances.  Easy access to capital provides California with the opportunity to attract talented entrepreneurs and create an environment that nurtures new innovations and disruptive technologies.  When new companies are successful, the money comes right back to California, funding a new generation of ventures.  It is this ecosystem that has made California a rich and fertile ground for raising capital and incubating the next generation of companies.

CAIA San Francisco is hosting an educational panel event for its Members, Candidates and Guests addressing topics related to successful capital raising in California, including:

  • The sources of capital (VC, PE and Crowd Funding), their salient features, advantages & differences
