There has been considerable interest in raising venture capital among several entrepreneurs in the Des Moines area recently. For those looking to raise capital you won’t want to miss an upcoming event sponsored by BIZ.

Matt Kinley, senior vice president of Pappajohn Capital Resources and Equity Dynamics, will be the BIZ guest and speaker at the Business Insights and Networking Luncheon on February 18, 2009. Matt will discuss raising venture capital from the investor’s point of view.

Many entrepreneurs do not understand what is expected from their business in order to raise capital. This is a great opportunity to learn from one of Iowa’s most respected and active venture capitalists.

The admission fee is $10.00. The event starts at 11:30 a.m., February 18th at the Des Moines Partnership’s offices, 700 Locust Street, Suite 100 in downtown Des Moines.
