It is HARD for non-social/consumer startups to find money, especially early.  For enterprise startups, ideal investors are quite often not angels or VCs but corporate and/or government partners who can provide both financing and critical customer engagements.  With larger companies moving heavily into the startup world, the ability to find and gain these partnerships has never been better.  But these are not free rides and quite often the motivations and criteria that these alternative sources use are very different from more traditional investors.  Join us to hear from some of the most exciting alternative funds in the area and learn what they are looking for and how they can help your company in more ways than you might realize!
