The EC’s Capital Connector is available to meet with Nashville-based entrepreneurs one-on-one and via office hours. During the initial meeting, our Capital Connector will assess the entrepreneur’s capital readiness and provide constructive feedback.
For entrepreneurs who are capital ready, our Capital Connector will make relevant introductions to capital providers. And for those entrepreneurs who are not ready, our Capitol Connector will help guide them to the next best resource, whether that is a mentor, an accelerator program, capital educational events, or other helpful tools.
To schedule your intake, please contact Capital Connector Haley Zapolski.
In order to make the most relevant matches between entrepreneurs and capital sources, we are compiling a detailed database for internal use by our team.
If you are an active investor looking to deploy capital, please contact Haley Zapolski. Be prepared to share details such as average check size, industry focus, past successes, and the size of your fund. All information is kept confidential and if we see an opportunity, we’ll connect you with a qualified entrepreneur.
Additionally, the EC is mapping debt and other non-dilutive capital resources, such as grant, need-based, or other award money. If you are a source of these types of funds, please also share with us any pertinent deadlines or parameters for application.
