The Raising Capital Workshop presented by Pacific Community Ventures (PCV) on March 6, 2013 is a comprehensive one day “financing boot camp” for small businesses located throughout the Greater Bay Area.
The luncheon program What Do Investors Want? A Roundtable Discussion Over Lunch is not to be missed! Each participant possesses a deep understanding of entrepreneurship and what it takes to make a small business truly successful to stand the test of time.
Jeff Holland – Partner – Seacoast Capital – Discussion Leader
Phil Estes – Co-Founder – Horizon Holdings
Mark French – Co-Founder – Robin Lane Capital
Noah Alper – Founder – Noah’s New York Bagels
Jeff, Phil and Mark have over 60 years of experience as professional investors in privately owned companies at the lower end of the middle market. Noah will provide insights and the perspective of an entrepreneur who had a successful small business but brought in outside investors that made the company truly flourish. Long before they were hip, Noah founded a thriving natural foods grocery store (Bread and Circus) in 1973 which ultimately was acquired by Whole Foods.
