12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

As businesses grow and scale, venture capital may be a feasible source of equity investment. We are lucky to have several Maine-based venture capital funds that invest in our local startups.

In this third part of a three-part series on equity investments, you’ll learn about the ins and outs of leveraging venture capital to raise equity for your business.

During this session, we’ll cover:

What is venture capital?
What does a venture capital investment mean for you and your business?
What types of businesses are a good fit?
What stage of business is a good fit?
What’s the “average” investment size?
I think I’m a candidate for venture capital. Now what?
We’ll leave time for Q&A at the end of the session.

If you have specific questions you’d like to make sure we cover, or a scenario you’d like us to generalize and use as an example, please email

This workshop will be presented by Nina Scheepers of the Maine Venture Fund and Chandler Jones of Coastal Ventures.

Hosted by: Coastal Enterprises, Inc. Women’s Business Center
