The Ciocca Center for Principled Entrepreneurship is excited to announce the first Capital Access Expo at CUA. The CAE at CUA will take place in Maloney Hall on February 22, 2020 from 8:30 - 12 pm. Participants will hear from funders and entrepreneurs that have successfully obtained capital in a series of panels, keynotes, and participate in a capital expo so they can identify what kinds of capital best suit their businesses. Over 15 banks, CDFI's, VC's, and Angel investors will be in attendance. Don't miss this opportunity to network with capital providers and to learn more about what kinds of funding options are best for your business. Participants can register for the CAE here.
Entrepreneurs leading small and medium-sized businesses face a unique set of challenges in growing their organizations. The Ciocca Center for Principled Entrepreneurship brings together practitioners, academics, and students to address these challenges. We value the opportunity to teach our students through a hands-on, living case-study model. The Ciocca Center promotes principled entrepreneurs: people capable of integrating personal virtue, cutting-edge entrepreneurial tools, and a long-term perspective to launch and grow enterprises that harness human creativity at the service of individuals, families, and communities.
